Linked Data - Structured Data On the Web with David Wood

The flexible, unstructured nature of the Web is being extended to act as a global database of structured data. Linked Data is a standards-driven model for representing structured data on the Web that gives developers, publishers, and information architects a consistent, predictable way to publish, merge and consume data. The Linked Data model offers the potential to standardize Web data in the same way that SQL standardized large-scale commercial databases. Linked Data has been adopted by many well-known institutions, including Google, Facebook, IBM, Oracle and government agencies, as well as popular Open Source projects such as Drupal.

David will present the Linked Data model in plain, jargon-free language to Web developers, avoiding the overly-academic terminology of the Semantic Web. In his new book David describes practical techniques using everyday tools like JavaScript and Python in detail to allow you to work step-by-step through examples of increasing complexity as you explore foundational concepts such as HTTP URIs, the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and the SPARQL query language. Then you'll use various Linked Data document formats to create powerful Web applications and mashups. This book teaches you how to effectively use emerging Web standards to find, query, use and create structured data on the Web.

    A good talk by David Wood and case study by David Jenson. I was inspired to think of serving better structured data by them. It was also good to know what solutions are out there for Linked Data by Petrillo.
