A declarative program describes what computation should be performed, without specifying how. Logic and functional programs are examples of declarative programming. However, most people have known declarative programming through domain specific languages such as SQL, Pig, Hive-QL, etc. This talk will survey past and ongoing work in declarative environments for data management and analytics, in academia as well as the industry.
