  • ​Welcome Reception

    No one is an outlier at this kick-off party. Check-in, drop your luggage in your room and then grab a drink. The welcome reception starts the event off in style with food, libations and music. Meet up with old friends and make new connections. Lars Bjork will lead the night with his traditional Swedish toast.

  • The Qlik Hack Challenge

    Data-gurus unite and save the world. The Qlik Hack Challenge calls for you to partner up (2-3 person teams) and put your Qlik Sense API skills to the test. Opening a few weeks before Qonnections, this hackathon will put your developer superpowers to work (capes are optional). The challenge? Create actionable solutions for some of the world’s most challenging issues using Qlik Sense APIs. At the judging event, we’ll hear presentations and crown the winners.

    Don't have a team of your own? No worries, once you register we will try our best to assign you to a team.
