Among the many exciting activities at the 10th Annual Semantic Technology & Business Conference (#SemTechBiz) is the partnership with the Linked Open Data in Libraries Archives, and Museums (LODLAM) Community. On Tuesday, August 19, 2014, LODLAM will hold a full day of trainings at the SemTechBiz Conference in San Jose, California. Registration information is available here.
We spoke to Jon Voss, Co-Founder of the International LODLAM Summit, about the Training Day:
SemanticWeb.com: What is the LODLAM Training Day?
SW: What can people expect to learn?
JV: We’ve broken the day down into two sections, basically: publishing data and reusing data. The first part of the day we’ll look at ways that libraries, archives and museums are putting massive amounts of structured data online for the public good, and what techniques and tools you can use to do it. The second part of the day we’ll be looking at using this data in different ways, how to use SPARQL queries, how to build data into other mashups, how to use open datasets to improve your own data, etc.
