It's time for yet another episode of Visual Studio Toolbox, a podcast that's been covering some of the intricacies of Visual Studio for a while. Although the podcast might not be great for the general Microsoft fan, developers who consider themselves proficient at Visual Studio might get a kick out of learning a few new things. The latest episode features Microsoft's Charles Sterling, who's come on to talk a little bit about Power BI, and how you can use it in your Visual Studio development.
The episode meets the average Visual Studio Toolbox length of around 23 minutes, so it's good for a sitting of listening. In the words of Robert Green in the episode's Microsoft blog post, it ought to show how "you can parse, model and transform the resulting JSON to make creating rich interactive reports a snap and integrate this into your development efforts by embedding the Power BI data visualizations into your web applications." If that sounds like something you might want to learn about, go ahead and give it a watch, or even put it on as background noise.
