Get hands-on experience with SPARQL, the RDF query language that's become a key component of the semantic web.

Several open source and commercial tools already support SPARQL, and this introduction gets you started right away.

Begin with how to write and run simple SPARQL 1.1 queries, then dive into the language's powerful features and capabilities for manipulating the data you retrieve. Learn what you need to know to add to, update, and delete data in RDF datasets, and give web applications access to this data.

  • Understand SPARQL’s connection with RDF, the semantic web, and related specifications
  • Query and combine data from local and remote sources
  • Copy, convert, and create new RDF data
  • Learn how datatype metadata, standardized functions, and extension functions contribute to your queries

Comments about O'Reilly Media Learning SPARQL:

I really like an instructional volume that dispenses with initial bouts theory of theory for good hands on tooling with a technology. This volume does a superb job of balancing theory with extensive examples and thorough discussion to provide a super grounding in the vocabulary and process of the SPARQL query language.
