I want to write a query for the Stack Exchange Data Explorer, but I'm not sure which language I need to learn in order to do so. At a glance it looks a bit like SQL, but I'm not entirely sure.
What language are SE Data Explorer queries written in?
A Quick Introduction to Data Explorer Queries
Click the Compose Query button up there and start typing your T-SQL query. That's it, it's really that easy! If you're not the query-writing type, you can still make use of all of the community-created queries, or check out the query tutorial for some help on how you can get started.
Thanks to animuson for pointing me towards the help page.
