Cambridge Semantic Web Monthly Meetup




David Wood, Three Round Stones: Demos from "Linked Data" - An upcoming book for Web developers.

"Linked Data" is an upcoming book from Manning that presents the Linked Data model in plain, jargon-free language to Web developers. Written for Web developers by Web developers, this book requires no previous exposure to Linked Data technologies.

This talk will demonstrate two code examples from the book: A Friend-of-a-Friend (FOAF) generator in JavaScript and an example of using Linked Open Data to create a weather reporting service for any ZIP code.

"Linked Data" ( is now available via the Manning Early Access Program (MEAP) and is expected in print during Summer 2013. The book is being written by David Wood, Marsha Zaidman and Luke Ruth, with assistance by Michael Hausenblas.

David Wood is co-chair of the W3C RDF Core working group, and CTO of Three Rounds Stones

    Great. I like the way it started with going around the room and asking
    everyone to introduce themselves.

    David's talk was interesting and the demos were very compelling.

    The presentation part usually goes for about an hour, and then the group walks across the hall to the MIT Pub for further informal discussion, nibblies and drinks.

      So even if I arrive a bit late it looks like there will still be plenty going on. Great, thanks David.

    Hello all, does this meetup go longer then 1 hour? I am asking because I probably won't make it until about 6:30pm as I am travelling in from Burlington on public transport.
