Introduction to RDF

$175.00

Dates: April 5 - May 2

Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs

This course will focus on the the basic concepts of the RDF framework, including URIs, Subjects, Predicates, and Objects, and how to use vocabularies as RDF Properties. We will work with an XML representation (serialization) of RDF and other representations as well (e.g. Turtle, N-Triples), and create some simple RDF resource descriptions (triples) to demonstrate how these descriptions can be used to link/share information about resources. This course will also introduce the following concepts: graph data and its relationship to RDF, fundamental concepts of Property Graphs and Knowledge Graphs, semantic vocabularies, ontologies, and knowledge organization systems. The Introduction to RDF will lay the foundation for future study in semantic vocabularies, Linked Data, and semantic search and discovery in subsequent courses in the LJA RDF series.
