MDX stands for Multi-Dimensional eXpressions. It is a query language used to access and manipulate data stored in multidimensional databases such as those used in data warehouses and business intelligence systems. MDX provides a way to define and analyze complex data sets, including multi-dimensional calculations, and can be used to create powerful visualizations and reports. MDX is widely used in the JavaScript domain for creating interactive dashboards and other data visualizations.

In this talk, we'll see how to reshape MDX so we can use it for very different layouts, things like scrollytelling, slide decks, and more.
