SPARQL By Example Webcast, Part II: Thursday, January 22

We had overwhelming interest and, consequently, questions during our first SPARQL By Example Webcast (recorded archive available) that we did back in December. We ended up going through some basic SPARQL queries against FOAF data, DBPedia data, and leading up to introducing OPTIONAL queries against Jamendo data at  This Thursday, Semantic Universe and I will be presenting a second part of this tutorial. We’ll look at other elements of SPARQL queries, including UNIONs, datasets, CONSTRUCT queries, ASK queries, DESCRIBE queries, negation, and several common extensions to SPARQL such as aggregates and free-text search. At least, covering all of that is the goal!

If you’re interested, you need to register in advance and then attend the Webcast at 1pm EST / 10am PST this Thursday, January 22. Hope to “see” many of you there.
