The Quirkos training we received is of high significance not just for my PhD research but for my overall academic progress as well. I found your training very interesting and informative. It was only in this training that I found the simplest and most easily accessible software not just for my QDA but also for my literature review papers. You have magnitudes of knowledge with reference to research and QDA and you must keep on spreading this knowledge for the benefit of this field and the researchers altogether.
