Very Gentle Linked Data
Adrian Stevenson and Jane Stevenson
The aim of this workshop is to give non-to-moderately-technical people a chance to create some linked data themselves.We will first take a look at some simple data modelling. Participants will create some RDF (Resource Description Framework) on paper. We will then use a text editor to convert the RDF into electronic form.
Time and technology permitting, those feeling brave enough will load their RDF into a Fuseki triple store running on their laptop. (http://jena.apache.org/documentation/serving_data/index.html). I will show how to get the triple store running. This step is optional.
We will then learn a little about SPARQL, the query language for linked data. We will perform some simple queries using our own data where possible, or on a publicly available triple store (internet connection permitting).
All interested in having a go at creating some linked data. No programming or previous linked data experience necessary.
Ability to use a text editor.
Not required. Bravery in the face of a command line prompt may help at times, but is not necessary.
Laptop with simple text editor.
