About

Kx Workshops are aimed at both a technical and business audience. Developers new to the technology will find the session very useful in gaining a quick guide to many features of the q language. Business managers will gain an understanding of what makes kdb+ different, and will leave with a thorough overview of the power of kdb+ and the range of uses to which it can be put. The workshops are a great way to learn about the technology in a hands on environment where you will solve real business problems.

This one-day hands-on workshop explains how kdb+ and the q language can address today’s data challenges. The program highlights the advantages of using q and its APIs to analyze massive data sets, and extract information to drive business decisions.
