GraphDB™ Fundamentals

GraphDB™ Fundamentals builds the basis for working with graph databases that utilize the W3C standards and particularly GraphDB™. It is a training class delivered in a series of nine videos that will accompany you in your first steps of using triplestore graph databases.

Start with the first three topics: RDF & RDFS, SPARQL and Ontology and stay tuned, another six are coming soon!

Module 1 – RDF(S)

RDF is a standardized format for graph data representation. This module introduces RDF, what RDFS adds to it, and how to use it by easy-to-follow examples from “The Flintstones” cartoon.

Module 2 – SPARQL

SPARQL is a SQL-like query language for RDF data. It is recognized as one of the key tools of the Semantic technology and was made a standard by W3C. This module covers the basis of SPARQL, sufficient to create you first  RDF graph and run you first SPARQL queries.

Module 3 – Ontology

This module looks at Ontologies: what is ontology; what kind of resources does it describe; and what are the benefits of using ontologies. Ontologies are the core of how we model knowledge semantically. They are part of all Linked Data sets.
