books for newbie power bi developer

i read this on the internet:

Power BI Developer Skills

Proficiency in data science, data analytics and business intelligence are the most critical skills a Power BI Developer must have. Along with these core aspects, the developer should know data integration, warehousing, modelling, presentation tactics, and concepts.

 

can anyone recommend me any books to read to build up the skill set ? Big Thanks!!

Personal opinion:  You only need one book, plus a series of articles that really should be a book by now.

 

1. Power Query M Primer (part 1): Introduction, Simple Expressions & let | Ben Gribaudo

2. The Definitive Guide to DAX – 2nd Edition - SQLBI

These are the top ten that I have on my bookshelf. Each of these is
highly relevant, and not likely to go out of vogue soon. My
recommendation is to find previously owned and in decent shape
copies to save money:


#1 - Start With Why - https://amzn.to/3J4uOuQ
#2 - DAX Patterns 2nd Edition - https://amzn.to/3RWUayM
#3 - Effective Data Storytelling - https://amzn.to/3PNFH6f
#4 - Star Schema - https://amzn.to/3BdcQUH
#5 - Definitive Guide to DAX - https://amzn.to/3RTs0EG
#6 - Master Your Data with Power Query - https://amzn.to/3RZg0ld
#7 - The Customer-Driven Playbook - https://amzn.to/3vbOZRG
#8 - Microsoft Power BI Performance Best Practices - https://amzn.to/3z6jtWb
#9 - Extreme Ownership - https://amzn.to/3PRF4sw
#10 - Supercharge Power BI - https://amzn.to/3PMCDr5

Hi @lbendlin , is there also a book that you can recommend to start with Power BI Embedded, specifically how to write the embedding app to utilize Power BI?

Thank you!

Martin

You may want to stick very closely to the official documentation, especially since this prone to changes.
