By today an ordinary human being would had been exposed to probably dozens of lists about several and arbitrary topics. For sure we all have read classics lists such as the best movies of 2015, the 25 books of the year, or top 10 songs of 2015, but on the internet, we can go much further than that and even have a list of lists.

I don’t want this year to end without sharing with you a list of the best posts of the year. But let me give you some numbers first.

This year 2015, 10 authors wrote 72 posts (not including this one) and a total of 36.756 words were written. We wrote the word "Qlik" 323 times during 2015 making an impressive average of 4.5 times per post! You, on the other hand, participated by commenting 619 times (8.6 comments per post of average), thanks a lot for that, we really appreciate your comments.

I can't finish the last post of the year without a selection of not-so-popular posts (yet), that deserve some more attention.
