Roller Coaster Vacation

Submitted by: Devin Knight

In this submission I have used Power BI to help me plan a vacation with my wife. We both love thrill rides so I wanted to make the best decision on planning our next trip. Using Power Query I imported data from the web to find all possible roller coasters and amusement parks. I then took that raw data and made relationships and calculations using Power Pivot. Next, I visualized the results through Power View to help guide me through the data easier. Finally, I uploaded my workbook to a Power BI site and enabled Q&A to allow my wife to ask the workbook questions about our trip.

Hi Devin, have you been already contacted by Microsoft about the semi-finalist and finalist prizes? I'm trying to contact somebody, but i'm not being successful?

Love this! Cedar Point in Ohio should be added on your bucket list for roller coasters. One thing I would add is a link to any videos that could be found in the search for each rollercoaster :-)

I'm wishing you'd been on a roller coaster recording this. Actually, since you can't take microphones onto roller coasters, you could've just moved the mouse around erratically, and had the sound of a roller coaster playing in the background. And then at the end, the joke would be that you'd just be in your office, faking it... But anyway - nice demo. :)

"My wife is very good at asking questions" I can totally relate to that :) Great demo Devin. Congrats!
