Masters Summit Prague

The 14th edition of the Masters Summit for Qlik will take place in Prague on 3-5 April 2018.  In this three day hands on education event our goal is to “Take your Qlik skills to the next level”  making you more productive and increasing the business value of your QlikView or Qlik Sense applications.

Through lecture,  hands on activities and takeaway code samples,  the Summit will expand your knowledge with advanced techniques and understanding of the core skills required in all Qlik application creation:

  • Data Modeling
  • Scripting
  • Advanced Aggregation & Set Analysis
  • Visualization.

In addition to core topics, we’ll have 1/2 day workshops on performance tuning and an introduction to creating Qlik Sense mashups using APIs.  See the complete agenda here.

Our evening guest speakers, networking events and optional lunchtime lectures fill out the program with additional content and lively discussion.

Our panel of five presenters are well known as authors, educators,  Qlik experts and members of the Qlik Luminary and MVP programs.

Have you taken basic Qlik training and/or worked with the product for a while?  Do you find yourself struggling with data modeling questions such as slowly changing dimensions and rolling time analysis?  Syntax for aggregation questions like “what products do top salesreps in each region sell?”  When do I need “$()” and when do I not?  More self assessment to determine if the summit is right for you can be found here.

I hope you can join us in Prague to take your Qlik skills to the next level.  The early bird registration discount is available until 2 March.  Event details and online registration.

See you there!

Get the Numbers Right

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.
