I travel a lot for business and personal reasons. I’ve used TripIt (owned by Concur) for several years to plan and manage my trips.
It’s a great tool, can’t image living without it.
Today TriptIt sent me a lovely graphic email summarizing my 2017 travel. The design was a very fashionable card layout with share-to-social links.
Pretty cool, but for one problem. It’s not my data.
Yes, those are definitely not my travel stats.
When I teach Qlik application development, a common question raised by students or other newcomers is: “What’s the most important skill to master? Scripting? Expression writing? SQL? Pre-attentive attributes? Color rules?”
My answer is always the same: “First, get the numbers right. Second, keep the numbers right”.
It doesn’t matter how it looks or how fast it calculates if the results are wrong.
Join me at the Masters Summit for Qlik in Prague 3-5 April where in addition to a full range of Qlik Dev topics, we’ll be discussing automating quality. I’ll be demonstrating tools to automate dashboard validation and continuous quality monitoring.
BTW I emailed the TripIt folks about the error, they’ve promised to look into it.
I’m pleased to announce our guest speakers for the upcoming Boston Masters Summit for Qlik , October 23-25
Anthony Deighton, Qlik CTO, will be our evening speaker. Since 2005 Anthony has been responsible for guiding product strategy and leading all aspects of the company’s R&D efforts. Anthony’s talk is sure to be interesting, stimulating and informative.
Nick Webster’s evening talk at the Munich summit was such a hit that we’re bringing him back in an expanded role. Nick will present a half day, hands-on session titled “Qlik Sense Integration”.
Want to understand the possibilities of the web and the Qlik platform? Nick’s session will help you understand the basics of HTML and CSS and show you how to construct a basic web page that displays data from Qlik Sense. After completing the session you’ll have a fully functional, interactive web application and the inspiration to continue your journey into the world of web development with Sense. No prior experience with Web Development or Qlik Sense is required.
Those special speakers are in addition to our already packed three day agenda.
I hope to see you in Boston!
