Get started with q and kdb+¶
Q is a general-purpose programming language. You can write programs for anything in q.
You do not need prior programming experience to learn it. If you have some experience with mathematics, functional programming or SQL, you will find in q much that is familiar.
In this section we offer different routes into the language. Find one that suits your experience and learning style. (Or ask the Librarian for what you need.)
