Then, led by Henric Cronström aka. HIC, the rest of the day followed with technical NDA presentations about Qlik Sense, marketplace and governed reuse, the data visualization roadmap, bug fix processes, and escalation management. We also enjoyed a roundtable discussion with Dan Sommer, Senior Director of Market Intelligence about BI trends and predictions, where Luminaries – who are at the front lines of the industry – got to share their thoughts on where the industry is going.
In the evening, we attended the local chapter of the Qlik Dev Group, where a couple of the Luminaries presented to a group of about 40 attendees about the work they’re doing with Qlik. It’s absolutely fantastic to see the Qlik ecosystem grow this way through knowledge sharing and exchanging of ideas.
But even our biggest fans can get tired of talking about Qlik for an entire day so in the evening we treated our guests to a nice dinner at a steakhouse in downtown Lund. Feasting on local delicacies, we concluded that it had been an incredible day filled with personal connections and mutually beneficial discussions. The dinner was buzzing with excitement about all the great things the future holds for Qlik - we can’t wait to do this again next year!
