  • The Qlik Hack Challenge

    Tuesday, May 14 from 7 to 10 PM in Grapevine A

    Ready to tackle the climate crisis with code? We hope so because your code could help change the world. Working to support the United Nations (UN) and using methodology from the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), this challenge will put your skills to the test. The mission? Develop solutions to support the UN in reducing their travel-related carbon footprint.

    If you’re up for the challenge, dig into our ‘No Planet B’ Challenge announcement and let’s start building. Teams should consist of developer gurus who are well versed with Qlik APIs and Qlik Core. You may also attend the event as a spectator to see what’s possible when developers harness the power of the Qlik Associative Engine. Winners will be announced the next day on the main stage.

    *Teams and spectators must register in advance for this event which includes food, beverage, networking + team presentations
