BlueQLTM is Skytable's own query language that is based on SQL, with a focus on modern syntax and security. The design attempts to deter injection attacks at development time through the use of mandatory parameterization of variable data, strict LHS-RHS expression enforcement and several other measures. Besides this, BlueQL supports modern syntax such as lists and dictionaries.

If you've used SQL before you should find BlueQL very easy to learn. There are some important differences to be aware of however, and you may wish to review them here and some more information here.
