Filtering Datasets with SoQl - Developer Spotlight

Execute and Retrieve Queries with a Familiar Language

Chris Metcalf, Socrata Director of Developer Experience, looks at how you can filter your datasets using the Socrata Query Language (SoQL). As the name suggests it is borrowed heavily from the Structured Query Language (SQL) used by many relational database systems. Chris shows how this similarity makes it easy for application developers to execute and retrieve queries. Chris explores how SoQL statements are broken into parameters and then used to execute queries against open data APIs.
