Tomer Ben Moshe, Chief Executive Officer, CoolaData

A Database Month event:
We use cohorts to analyze retention and we use funnels to examine a user's success in completing a certain flow or process.
This event will teach you how to use CQL to take funnel and cohort analysis to the next level. CQL is a new SQL syntax which simplifies advanced Big Data queries. As a behavioral extension of the set-based SQL, CQL is a useful tool for querying a sequence of behavioral user events.

Tomer Ben Moshe, CEO of CoolaData, will explain how CQL was developed and illustrate how it can be used.
