Qlik Sense Developer

Course description and Duration

In this 3-day instructor led course you’ll learn the ins and outs of the ETL (Extract-Transform-Load) process in Qlik Sense. We’ll start by covering the ‘Extraction’ of data, going over the different data connectors, discuss on-prem data sources vs cloud and hybrid data sources. After a short intermezzo on networks & firewalls we’ll learn how to load data incrementally and which pitfalls to avoid. 

Next up is ‘Transforming’ of data, starting with the basics we’ll switch to the more challenging functions with sufficient use-cases and hands-on exercises.  Followed by some best practices on the Governance of your ETL in Qlik Sense and an introduction to Master Data & Data Quality. 

On the third day, we’ll see how to ‘Load’ data into your front-end app and how a link table allows you to report on different types of facts with some shared dimensions.  After a short intermezzo of performance gains & drains in the ETL code, we’ll end the training with a hands-on exercise.
