QVDs form a crucial part of many Qlik implementations, and are an ideal way of persisting data in both Sense and QlikView.

This week saw the 10th Qlik Dev Group in London. It was notable not only for the first non-Qlik based presentation, from the wonderful Nadieh Bremer, but also the first public appearance of VizLib.
