With an increase in users comes an increase in interesting content from those in the community. As the amount of Power BI content included in the Analytics category of Azure Weekly has seemed ever-increasing recently, we thought that we'd give the content its own newsletter, Power BI Weekly, where you can find all the week's Power BI news and technical content.
