Season’s greetings!

SenseTheme Christmas 2018 theme

Season’s greetings from QlikFix / Bitmetric! Just a quick little post to direct your attention to the SenseTheme Gallery, where we’ve just added a Christmas 2018 theme by our colleague Gwenny Sonneville.

And since we like being prepared, our colleague Bernard de Bruin has already created additional themes for winter, spring and summer 😉

Wishing all of you happy holidays and all the best for the new year!

For those of your who are interested in that sort of thing, below you can find some stats on SenseTheme usage in 2018

SenseTheme in 2018: some stats

For a little hobby/team building project, we hadn’t anticipated that SenseTheme would become as popular as it has. Since March, more than 25,000 themes have been customized and downloaded, of which roughly 5,000 themes were original creations by you (rather than modifying themes from the gallery). Unfortunately, none of those themes were sent to us for inclusion in the gallery. Built a theme that looks nice? Get in touch.

After the initial spike of roughly 1,000 users per week, there are currently between 400 and 500 individual users per week, with an average session time of between 5 and 6 minutes. Not too shabby!

We’ve received around 150 emails with feature requests, comments and questions. I’ve tried answering all of them, but may have missed one or two.

Finally, a special shout out to Steve Dark of Quick Intelligence, who’s the only person who actually bought us a beer this year. Thanks again Steve, much appreciated!

Want to make your Qlik apps even better/nicer?

If you’ve been following this blog for some time, you’ll have heard of the Masters Summit for Qlik, a 3 day training that will take your QlikView / Qlik Sense skills to the next level. Besides making your Qlik apps look really nice, we’ll also help you make them perform great!

For the April 2019 edition in Stockholm, we’ve added a cool twist to the program. Besides the ‘regular’ Qlik program, you can now also follow a second 3 day Qlik API track. This track is specifically aimed at web developers that want to get the most out of the Qlik APIs. Taught by QLIK API expert Nick Webster and Speros Kokenes.

You can follow either track individually, or combine them for 5 days of Qlik goodness. Check out the website, I look forward to meeting you there!

SenseTheme: Theme Builder for Qlik Sense

SenseTheme

TL;DR: check out SenseTheme.

At Bitmetric, my colleagues and I regularly meet after work to investigate and experiment with interesting methods and technologies, share knowledge and generally shoot the breeze (we’re all at different client sites during the week, so it’s a good time to catch up).

The topic of our last meetup was Qlik Sense Themes. This is one of the big new (and highly anticipated) features in the Qlik Sense February 2018 release, allowing you to create custom themes for your apps. Our expectation was that we’d get the general idea of themes, go over the syntax and build a few cool themes. In reality, our meetup quickly devolved into a hunt for missing curly braces, property names and CSS classes. Still fun, if you’re into that sort of thing, but not as productive as we’d hoped.
