Semantic Web Austin

With RDFa support in core, Drupal 7 introduces new possibilities for website owners to publish structured semantic data on the Web. With the addition of modules like RDF Extensions, it becomes possible to customize the data you want to publish as RDF, and describe the structured of your data so that other applications can reuse it. The SPARQL and SPARQL Views modules allow to reuse and combine Linked Data from elsewhere on the Web to purpose it for your application.

In this full day tutorial (lunch included!), you will be able to get hands-on with Drupal 7 and it’s semantic capabilities. For more information, check out the following tutorial:
