Bitmetric Qlik Sense Coding Conventions

Share this message

At Bitmetric, we do not believe in universal ‘best practices’. Which approach, standard, or method is most effective should always be evaluated in the context of the environment. That being said, there are certainly starting points that can be considered ‘good ideas’. For instance, our Qlik Sense Coding Conventions.

Readable and consistent Qlik Sense script

Coding conventions or scripting is one of the standards Bitmetric uses in its Qlik Sense projects. By offering readable and consistent Qlik Sense script, the main goal is to reduce maintenance and change efforts. The script is, after all, read far more frequently than it is written, and “if it works, it works” is just not good enough in our opinion.

A well-written script simplifies maintenance, improves the overall quality of the solution, and is an investment in the future.

This document lays out our go-to style. This 66-page document document describes, amongst other things, our standards for script organization, naming, use of statements, comments and white space. In addition, the document contains general tips and advice for Qlik Sense developers.
