About the Webinar

Linked Data Platform (LDP), the latest W3C standard for Linked Data, brings REST to Linked Data. LDP defines a standard way to access, create, and update RDF resources over HTTP. With this new capability, businesses can use Linked Data for data integration in read/write mode.

This webinar will introduce you to this new standard, explaining what’s in it and how it fits with other standards like SPARQL. You will have a basic understanding of what you can expect to be able to do with this new technology so you can plan on how to best leverage it in your future business applications.

Q&A: Q & A – Callimachus: Semantic Web Apps Made Easy

 

RDFa makes it easy for Web publishers to expose data on the Web, but RDFa can also make it easy to develop Web data applications. Watch how easy it is to replace complex data schemas and their SQL queries with simple RDFa attributes in your HTML markup!

In this webcast, James Leigh, a lead developer (with David Wood) on the Callimachus Project, will show us how a Web developer can create semantically-enabled Web applications with a minimal knowledge of the internals of the Semantic Web and SQL. For further details, see Callimachus Project at http://www.callimachusproject.org.
