College Project - Developing Custom Power BI Connector

Hi Everyone,

 

Over the summer I interned with a company and was very impressed with Microsoft power bi's capabilities as I carried out my responsibilities as a business analyst. 

I have decided to invest more time into power bi during my senior year in college and will be working on developing a custom power bi connector for Instagram over the next 2 and 1/2 months.

 

I am reaching out on here because I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to offer their advice on carrying out a project like this.

 

All the best,

Joshua Cortigiano
