This course will wrap up the study of SPARQL 1.1 syntax that began in SPARQL Fundamentals I & II and also get you working with your own RDF triplestore. Topics to be covered include: SPARQL Property Paths and an overview of SPARQL Operators and Functions, a close look at some interesting and useful functions not covered in the previous courses. We'll also spend time with the SPARQL CONSTRUCT stateme
We accept registrations through the first week of classes, unless enrollment is full, and unless the class was canceled before it started due to low enrollment.
Prerequisites: SPARQL Fundamentals I & SPARQL Fundamentals II
This course will wrap up the study of SPARQL 1.1 syntax that began in SPARQL Fundamentals I & II and also get you working with your own RDF triplestore. Topics to be covered include: SPARQL Property Paths and an overview of SPARQL Operators and Functions, a close look at some interesting and useful functions not covered in the previous courses. We’ll also spend time with the SPARQL CONSTRUCT statement and learn how to use CONSTRUCT in queries to create triples as output. Finally, we will install the Apache Jena TDB triplestore and learn how to load data into a triplestore and manage that data with INSERT, LOAD, DELETE, and CLEAR.
Pre-requisites: the SPARQL Fundamentals I & SPARQL Fundamentals II courses are the main pre-requisites as this course will build on the foundations established there.
This course is a follow-up to our Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems.
