A very elegant link table script

Some nice out of the box thinkingToday was the last day of the Masters Summit for Qlik in Johannesburg and we all had a great time. One of the things I very much enjoy about these events is the chance to speak with so many experienced people who are enthusiastic about Qlik and keen to share their knowledge. I always go home with some cool new tricks and insights.

What I want to share with you today is an alternative script for building a link table. This was shared with me by Rene McGregor and the nice folks over at QlikView South Africa (who have also been very supportive in bringing the Masters Summit to South Africa, much appreciated).

Masters Summit Milan recap

Last week the Masters Summit for Qlik was held in Milan, Italy. For those unfamiliar with the event, the Masters Summit is a 3 day advanced training for QlikView and Sense developers. If you have followed all the Qlik trainings (Designer, Developer, etc.), have 1 to 3 years of experience and ask yourself “Now what?” then this training is perfect for you.

I was at the Masters Summit and presented two sessions, Data Modeling and Server/Publisher Administration. In this post I will share with you some of the experiences and feedback from the event.

81 Qlik enthusiasts participated in this edition and as you can see in the photo below, we were at full capacity.

A packed house!

Have QlikView – Will Travel. Where do Masters Summit attendees come from?

Advanced QlikView Training: theMasters Summit for QlikViewIf you are a regular reader of this blog, you are probably aware of the Masters Summit for QlikView. Besides offering some of the best advanced QlikView training available on the market, this 3 day event adds a unique “conference feel” where you are able to network and exchange ideas with peers from all around the world.

My colleague Frédérique recently put together some visualizations to answer some questions we had about our attendees; where do our attendees come from? How far do they travel? What kind of companies do they work for? Do they and their companies experience enough value to return?

As I thought you might enjoy these visualizations as well I have posted them to the blog. If you want to hear more about our attendees’ experiencing, be sure to also check out the testimonials page over on the Masters Summit website.

Adding annotations to charts

Annotations in QlikView charts

I am currently at the Masters Summit for QlikView in San Francisco attending Bill Lay‘s session on QlikView data visualization. Besides hilarious delivery, Bill is showing some pretty cool visualization examples and tricks.

One thing Bill was showing are various ways you can add annotations to charts, putting them either on the axis or in the legend. One additional view that Bill and I discussed earlier is to put the annotations on the data point. Bill just asked me if there was a blog post about it. There wasn’t, but there is now. Not as polished as usual, but you’ll get the gist by looking at the QVW attached below.
