ODBMS.org Interview with Kx Data Engineer Jamie O’Mahony

8 Aug 2017 | Kdb+, kx, Lambda Architecture

Kx engineer Jamie O’Mahony was recently interviewed by Roberto Zicari of ODBMS.org about design considerations in large-scale database applications. The questions discussed include: “What are the typical mistakes made on large scale data projects? In your opinion, how can they be avoided in practice?;” “How do you ensure data quality?” and “What are the typical mistakes made on large scale data projects?

Kdb+ Interface to R

2 Aug 2017 | Kdb+, kx, R programming language

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.
