    • Yahoo! open stackand YQL Saurabh Sahni (@saurabhsahni) Open Hack Mixer, Bangalore, July ‘2011
    • To build a web hackyou need threethings:
    • 1.  Data2.  Access3.  Interface
    • Yahoo! has openedup its data
    • http://developer.yahoo.com/everything.html
    • Also others
    • ProgrammableWeb.Com – 3517 APIs
    • The trouble with data: •  You need to find data API •  Get Access – Signup for key •  Find data endpoint •  Read docs to learn what parameters you have •  Get data in obscure format •  Use data after converting and filtering •  More APIs you use, more is your annoyance
    • To make dataaccessible, Yahoo!created YQL
    • YQL: http://developer.yahoo.com/yql/console
    • YQL turns webservices and dataon the web intodatabases.
    • select {what} from {where} where {conditions}
    • You can select, filter,sort and limit dataand you can eveninsert, update anddelete from it.
    • Let’s see it
    • YQL has more to it
    • There’s also YahooPipes to do this visually
    • http://pipes.yahoo.com/
    • Data however is notenough.
    • You also needworking interfaces
    • Technologies areeasy: HTML, CSS,Javascript
    • Making it work onall browsers and OSis tricky
    • So, we have YUI!
