  • SELECT * FROM Internet Using YQL

    by Jonathan LeBlanc

    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. Using the simplified SQL syntax that YQL is based in, YQL seeks to open all data on the web into a standardized format. Manipulating and mashing up sources as if they were tables, YQL becomes a repository for exploring government, event, social and API data on the web.

    This talk will cover the core techniques within YQL, including server-side JavaScript with native E4X support for manipulating data, key / value pair data storage and the process of creating your own YQL tables for accessing web based content. Going further with the integration of the open authentication standards defined by OAuth, we’ll delve into advanced authentication techniques using this standard within YQL.

    At 2:30pm to 3:15pm, Wednesday 2nd June
