Building scalable YQL widgets with JavaScript

A session at BayJax July 2009

Monday 27th July, 2009

8:00pm to 8:30pm (PST)

The Yahoo! Query Language provides a rich and dynamic method for obtaining and manipulating data from any source or api on the internet – with YQL the internet becomes your database. Coupling the data backend of YQL with the extensive data visualization and flow techniques of JavaScript through libraries such as YUI, a developer can build powerful widget and data systems using a simplified SQL syntax that YQL is based in. The marriage of YQL and JavaScript brings a robust MVC interface to the browser.
