Our third interview in our UnitedWeTech chat series is, coincidentally, with 3Cloud Consultant Kristyna Hughes. We chatted with her about her work with PowerBI, some unique business requirements for a client and her innovative solution, and some of her hobbies and interests. You can read more about the Tabular Object Model Hack on her website www.dataonwheels.com or on twitter at @anytsirk12.
