Performance and Optimization Best Practices in QlikView & Qlik Sense
To help Qlik customers and Qlik partners, I amalgamated a group of resources from many contributors over the years to deliver a solid 1 hour performance and best practices webinar. The presentation was recorded and presented during the AMERICAS Virtual User Group in January 2016. The feedback has been very positive and I would encourage any individual in a presales , consulting or general qlik developer to have a look and disseminate how they see fit.
To me , the value of this webinar is as follows
It instills an understanding of why a best practice is a best practice. If you understand why something is good for performance, you are more likely to come up with ideas to resolve issues. The webinar establishes a core understanding of how Qlik stores and manages data . This is important because most of our best practices related directly back to the data storage model. A dimensional field with millions of unique values will create a disproportionately large symbol table that itself contains many disproportionately large bit stuffed pointer values which must also be referenced in the relevant data table ... that type of thing.

It helps you understand why hardware is important and why certain hardware introduces latency for the in-memory engine.
