Developer Garfield Brown has made two interesting contributions to that could be very helpful for kdb+ programmers.

The first is a python module mirroring the qserver for R code.

The second is an interface to the publicly available minpack solver for non-linear equationswith an application to non-linear least squares model fitting.

The code and a small example are in Garfield Brown’s contribution section on the Kx wiki.


kdb+ and NAG library with PyQ

Using the NAG Library for Python with kdb+ and PyQ

25 Jun 2019 | , ,

This paper provides detailed instructions on how to use the Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) Library for Python with kdb+ and PyQ. The NAG Library contains more than 1,800 mathematical and statistical routines, and is accessible by numerous programming languages (including Python, C++, Java, Fortran, etc.).

A comparison of Python and q for data problem solving

8 May 2019 |

This article takes a simple, real-life problem and analyzes different solutions in Python and q. The problem leads us to discover nice areas of both programming languages, including vector operations, Einstein summation, adverbs and functional form of select statements. Each solution has lessons that deepen our IT knowledge, especially when we consider performance.

Web Scraping – A Kdb+ Use case
