Description of Yahoo Query Language
The Yahoo! Query Language is an expressive SQL-like language that lets you query, filter, and join data across Web services
With YQL you can convert any web content into an API!!!
How does that work??
- YQL retrieves the web content
- YQL applies your parser
- YQL returns formatted XML or JSON
YQL lets you create an API where there was none before

Make sure to checkout the Yahoo Developer Network Console, where you can play with the Query Language.
Great to see more and more developers developing a “playground” for future developers!
