Happy 2020 Everyone! 2019 seemed to have gone flying by, it had been a very busy year for me – lots of really interesting Qlik projects, learnt a lot of new skills and of course, lot more about Qlik’s internal workings.

The project revolves around a game that I built (17 years ago…) and I needed to display the results with his game avatar. And that led to these 2 simple extensions.
