Extend, Integrate and Expand: Using the Qlik Sense® APIs to create a sea of possibilities

The APIs in Qlik Sense® offer direct access to the powerful QIX Engine, opening up huge possibilities for developers looking to extend, integrate, and expand the product.  In this session, Brian Munz, Director of Developer Relations, will show the various ways these APIs can be used to power incredible applications that range from Qlik's more traditional BI space to new and unexpected use cases.  An overview of the APIs will be presented as well as demos of these APIs in use.  Through this session, you should expect to come away with a better knowledge of, and appreciation for, the amazing possibilities of leveraging the Qlik Sense® APIs.
