Using YQL by Guilherme Chapiewski (Yahoo)


The Yahoo! Query Language - YQL - is an expressive SQL-like language that lets you query, filter, and join data across web APIs. With YQL, your apps can run faster with fewer lines of code and a smaller network footprint. YQL is specially useful when you want to hack or even build production-grade apps using a number of different publicly-available APIs with very fast bootstrap time and very little effort. This talk will guide you through the basics of YQL and will get you ready and in the best position to win any hack competition ;)




Guilherme Chapiewski (a.k.a. "GC") is Sr. Engineering Manager at Yahoo, where he became passionate and advocate for YQL after joining in 2010. He has been working with professional software development since 1999 and over the years became specialist in high-scalable and high-performing applications development using Java, Python, JavaScript among a variety of languages and technologies. More recently he became part of the Mobile and Emerging Products group at Yahoo, where he leads the team building mobile Search experiences for iOS and Android.
