One Doc to Rule Them All: Quandl Launches API Documents 2.0

An API is only as good as its documentation. Everyone knows that. But not everyone knows how much work goes into making (and then keeping) documentation good. From the dev and marketing teams to the data scientists and UX specialists (not to mention the insightful user feedback we’ve been receiving since day one), we need all hands on deck to build, deliver and maintain good docs. As some of our users have pointed out, our API documentation has needed a revamp for some time now. Because of Quandl’s constantly growing functionality and tools, we kept adding to our docs piecemeal...

Quandl Launches New Search and Browse

We’re pleased to announce the general availability of our new search and browse experience on Quandl. Over the last six months, we have been hard at work iterating and testing a substantially improved data discovery experience. After hundreds of builds, five separate beta tests, thousands of survey questions and plenty of heated (though enjoyable) debates, we think we’ve got something you’ll love. Thanks to those of you who offered beta feedback. Your wisdom, intuition and in some cases wit went a long way towards informing the iterations of these critical functions. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you....

Quandl Has a New Look

Today we’re launching a brand refresh for Quandl, which you can see on our website. These updates reflect the exciting road we’ve traveled - from our roots as a “financial search engine,” to the platform we are today - the premier source of financial, economic, and alternative data for investment professionals. Quandl’s early platform aggregated a large amount of “data in the wild”, made it searchable and offered users a better consumption experience than was commercially available. The search aspect of Quandl was and still is an important feature of the product, and formed the basis of our original logo...

Change to Quandl API Limits

We have made changes to our API limits as of November 21, 2016 at 8AM EST. Users of the Quandl API may be affected by these changes. Specifically, because of unsustainable usage levels, we are now prohibiting simultaneous API calls from a single user. New API Limits Registered users are now limited to one API request at a time, with additional requests being throttled until the first request has been returned. These changes will not impact subscribers of premium databases on Quandl. Open Database Users Premium Database Subscribers Concurrent calls to the API prohibited Concurrent calls to the API permitted (unchanged) 50,000...

Meet the winners of the 2016 Big Data Big Impact competition!

Quandl recently sponsored the annual Big Data Big Impact competition, and we’re proud to share the winning team’s project today. Undergraduates from the University of British Columbia -- Benjamin Lim, Lilian Lau, Prapon Wongsangaroonsri and Taeyoon Lee -- used Quandl’s World Bank data to examine the relationship between exports and GDP in developing countries. The annual competition encourages students to evaluate one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The UBC team identified exports as a major channel for growth in Least Developed Countries (LDC). In their preliminary analysis, they created a heat map for GDP growth. “Quandl’s API simplified our...

Talking to Tradestreaming About Unbundling

Recently, our CEO Tammer Kamel spoke to Tradestreaming about how we’re unbundling both financial data and financial apps. You can read the entire interview here. Below is an excerpt: Looking at Product Hunt, it appears a lot of new apps are being built using your APIs. What’s happening here and what does this ecosystem look like years down the road? Yes, this is an exciting development for us. Currently, there are over a hundred financial and analytical apps built on top of Quandl’s API, all created by the Quandl community. You can get Quandl data into scientific and mathematical tools...
