As someone who took Designer and Developer as student, back in 2011, and who now teaches all of the QlikView and Qlik Sense courses, I can tell you that what was most mportant me, was to gain as much knowledge as possible before attending both classes. So based on your question, “What would you have liked to know prior to attending the courses”, I downloaded and went through , “The QlikView Tutorial”. That preparation allowed me to hit the ground running thus getting the most value out of the courses.
Here is link to The QlikView Tutorial.
Thanks Tony for the reply - I went through the tutorial.
I don't want to start a new thread so I'll ask here as it is still relevant. There is a book to purchase on Amazon called QlikView 11 for Developers by Barry Harmsen. Would this book be outdated since there is a QlikView 12 or would the information in that book be still relevant?
Funny to read that, Tony .
I jumped into the course unprepared and that turned out fine. Granted, I had a developer background and understanding very basic SQL did help a bit for the Developer training.
So you could just show up without any preparation, but I totally agree with Tony that the things he suggested will help you with getting more out of the training in the end. It results in the starting lessons not being completely new to you so you will learn / remember more from the later lessons. Plus you might already have some questions; always good .
