New Semantic Web Meetup: SPARQL tutorial, by Luke McCarthy
Where: Dorothy Lam boardroom, BCCRC
When: Wednesday, February 29th 2012, 6pm

Abstract:
RDF (Resource Description Framework) is a language for data description
that is the basis of the Semantic Web. RDF imagines data as a graph in
which individuals (nodes) are related to each other by way of predicates
(edges). This graph can be interrogated using the SPARQL Protocol and
RDF Query Language, which allows the user to specify combinations of
required and optional graph patterns. This tutorial will introduce
SPARQL as a means to query local and remote RDF data, with concrete
examples provided using the platform-independent ARQ toolkit. Query
federation among multiple data sources will also be discussed, with
concrete examples provided using SWObjects.

Bio:
Luke McCarthy is a programmer who has been working on Semantic
Web-related projects for five years, most recently as the lead developer
of SADI (Semantic Automated Discovery and Integration), a framework for
building Semantic Web Services.
