For some time I have been thinking about how to improve the Sense development process as a whole. There is a lot of gathered experience and best practices from the wider software development community, but how can we apply this to Qlik Sense development?
Some initiatives are starting to appear. Qlik themselves are open sourcing microservices such as the Governed Metrics Service , as well as open sourcing key libraries that make it easier to use Sense as a general purpose analytics platform. I have a couple of contributions in this space too, with the Butler and App duplicator microservices.
I think more can be done though.
Looking at the concepts promoted in DevOps, it struck me that Sense development follows about the same phases as those in DevOps. Combining Sense and DevOps of course gives us….
The more I looked at it, the more I felt “wow – SenseOps really rocks!”
Thus, please meet a new site: senseops.rocks
(edit: That site has been shut down. It was built using rather old tech and it eventually became too hard maintaining it).
Head over for a look, and feel free to feedback in the discussion forums there.
