LONDON

Where it all began...



Welcome to the Qlik Dev Group in LONDON!

The City of London is home to some of the largest Qlik environments in the world. With often fragmented infrastructures, hundreds of users and hundreds of millions of rows of data to expose, developers working in the Financial Services (FS) sector are constantly challenged to build the best, scalable applications to incredibly tight deadlines. This is not unique to FS of course, but is commonplace there. And we don’t even get to build very pretty dashboards too often – everyone wants a pivot table!

The London events are so far the largest and most frequent, with over 65 attendees meeting up every 2 months or so to hear from a range of exciting speakers and each other!

Please read on and register to attend an event….
