As promised, the Stack Exchange Data Explorer — a web-based tool for querying our creative commons datais now open source!

This is, of course, the project that our newest Valued Associate, Sam Saffron, has been working so hard on over the last 6-8 weeks.

The project is hosted at Google Code in a Mercurial repository:

http://code.google.com/p/stack-exchange-data-explorer/

The SEDE is built using the very same software stack we use on Stack Overflow:

  • jQuery

  • .NET 4.0 C#

  • Visual Studio 2010

  • SQL Server

  • IIS7

You can get started using the completely free Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition.

Check out the readme.txt for additional details, or browse the source through Google Code’s web UI.

It was always our hope that the SEDE could be used as a freely embeddable web tool to teach SQL with a sample dataset — and now, the code itself is available to modify, improve, and learn from as well.

Podcast logo The Stack Overflow Podcast is a weekly conversation about working in software development, learning to code, and the art and culture of computer programming.
