Qlik Hack Challenge. A highly anticipated annual event, this hackathon uncovers the very best app building skills and development talent using Qlik APIs, Qlik Core and code. This year we’re calling on developers to participate in the “There is no Planet B” challenge, where data will be provided by Qlik corporate responsibility partner the United Nations (UN) and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Qlik and the UN challenge the community to create a solution to reduce travel-related carbon dioxide emissions. Every hackathon participant will have access to Qlik Branch®, a collaborative developer workspace and community, and support from internal Qlik experts moderating the event.

For the first time, these teams will also build their world-changing solutions prior to Qonnections. At the event, teams will be able to improve their applications, ask the experts for advice and then present their solution for reduced travel-related carbon dioxide emissions.
