Introduction to Semantic Technologies - Your On-Ramp to the Web of Data
So, you're interested enough in Web 3.0/Semantic Web to come to a Meetup. You know that people are talking about it, but you aren't exactly sure why. What is it really? And what is it not? What's the value? What are all these acronyms people keep talking about: RDF, OWL, SPARQL? What's a "triple" and why should you care? Does this have anything to do with "linked data?"
Maybe you already know the answers to these questions, but when you talk about SemWeb to friends and colleagues, they back slowly away... At this Meetup, we'll address some of these core questions in an easy-to-understand way – even if you have never seen a line of computer code.
Come join Eric Franzon (SemanticWeb.com) for this friendly and fun introduction!
Attendees will learn:
- The basics of core Semantic Technologies
- How the technologies are being used today (and who's using them)
- More technical folks will also learn some helpful ways to simply and clearly explain Semantic Tech to their favorite business user, web developer, potential investor, or barrista!
