Our tagline: kdb+ and q, simply faster. How did we come up with this? We didn’t just make it up, our users told us this. We love it and we are using it!

We started the kx community as a way to bring users together to share their experience with kdb+ and q. Users have been using the software for years to great success and we wanted to bring this community together to get people talking, sharing tips, posting blog entries and helping each other make the most of our software. This is powerful software that solves complex problems. Bringing this group together just shares the knowledge.

What we also found was a competitive group – a group that likes to share the success they’ve had using kdb+ and q. When a user can make kdb+ and q do what they imagined and more, not only are they excited but we are excited too!

We hope you enjoy the community and find value. We look forward to your contributions and your knowledge-sharing.
