This course will take a deeper dive into SPARQL 1.1 syntax and expand on the basic syntax covered in the introductory course. Topics to be covered include: SPARQL Data Types, Functions, and different types of SPARQL queries. We’ll spend a great deal of time exploring ways to run queries against remote SPARQL endpoints and how to manipulate the data obtained from those endpoints. We will also continue to build on the SPARQL syntax learned in the SPARQL I course.
Pre-requisites: the SPARQL Fundamentals I course is the main pre-requisite as this course will build on the foundations established there. This course is followed by The SPARQL Fundamentals III.
This course is a follow-up to our Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems.
