Data Analysis, No Code Necessary
Let’s quickly go over what VQL is and why we’re working on it. The problem — your company has data in a database, but as much as you’d like, not all of your employees know SQL (or insert your favorite ORM here).
There are lots of “solutions” like teaching SQL, asking an engineer, and building internal tools. My favorite are the text files people save with queries they often run, sort of like SQL Mad Libs.
VQL is a web UI that lets you ask expressive questions of your database (or csv or xlsx). Set it up and you can search, average, histogram, plot, etc. A common use case is to use VQL to filter or aggregate and, in one click, export to Excel for further analysis.
