  • The Qlik Hack Challenge

    Ready to tackle a world problem with code? The Qlik Hack Challenge puts your programming skills to work. The challenge? Create actionable solutions for one of the world’s most challenging issues using Qlik APIs. Last year we partnered with C40 Cities to tackle climate change with data from the City of Boston and their Greenovate Boston movement. This year? We are working on something even bigger.

    The details
    Either form a 3-5 person team or join one once you register. You may also attend as a spectator to see what’s possible when developers harness the power of Qlik’s Associative Engine. Almost all team work should be performed before Qonnections. At this event, we’ll hear team presentations then start the after party — something you won’t want to miss.
