Kdb+ Interface to R

2 Aug 2017 | , , , , ,

Kx recently introduced an updated interface to R from kdb+. R is a development environment commonly used for data analysis and visualizing data. When interfacing R with kdb+ we can think of kdb+ as a database behind R which can be used to store huge amounts of data, and we can easily extract this data using the language q. In this blog, Kx engineer Louise Totten demonstrates how to utilize the strengths of both R and kdb+/q to perform statistical analyses using real world examples.

Kx Technical Whitepaper: C API for kdb+

20 Jul 2017 | , , , ,

In the latest Kx technical whitepaper by Jeremy Lucid, "C API for kdb+," it is illustrated how the C API can be used to enable a C program to interact with a kdb+ process, and thereby leverage the real-time streaming and processing strengths of kdb+. The paper includes multiple working code samples, made available for reference and reuse on GitHub,  which cover a broad range of common use cases - including publishing data to, and consuming data from, kdb+ instances.
