Written by Michael Larabel in Programming on 12 April 2021 at 06:33 PM EDT. 13 Comments
Google engineers are responsible for a number of programming languages like Go and Dart while their newest one to be made public is Logica.

Logica is the successor to Yedalog, another language out of Google. Logica compiles to SQL and can run on Google BigQuery with experimental support for PostgreSQL and SQLite databases.

Logica is a declarative, logic programming language for data manipulation. Among its goals are enhancing the readability of queries compared to SQL while also being more suitable for big data handling. Logica is open-source under an Apache 2.0 license.

More details on Logica can be found via the Google Open-Source Blog that wrote a lengthy piece (including code samples) for those potentially interested in this programming language for data manipulation. The Logica project itself is hosted at
