SharePoint development state in 2016: story based on sharepoint.stackexchange analysis with Power BI

I’ve heard about Power BI and Power BI Desktop a lot, but have never tried these tools before. So I decided to make an analysis of some popular  questions and answers forum - http://sharepoint.stackexchange.com with help of Power BI Desktop. If you are SharePoint person (developer, admin, power user, etc.) that’s a big chance that you have visited this site before or may be you are even frequent visitor. In this post you will find a lot images, graphics, trends, tables, maps, charts and so on. All made with great tool Power BI Desktop and Stack Exchange API as data source. Some advanced data was collected with help of Google Maps Geocode API and nodejs webpages scrapper – osmosis.

The data was grabbed from sharepoint.stackexchange in the beginning of January, 2017. Most of the data is filtered starting from 2010 year, because relatively small number of questions were created before 2010 (around 200).
