Hi guys,

It occurs to me that lots of people may not be familiar with javascript who are from a more traditional Qlikview environment. Javascript has come a long way. We can use Javascript to build some great extensions. Just take a look at the Qlik branch website.

Here is a list of good starter tutorials for javascript and eventually NodeJS which is a javascript based serverside technology that we can use to build complete web applications!

The fundamentals:

Luckily we don’t all need to know this stuff by heart to be productive with Qlik. I recommend checking out the following library tutorials to get productive quickly!

Starts to get more interesting and the core chapters cover git change control and the basic principles of nodejs!
