Slide Presentation by a Semantic Web Expert: “Introduction to Linked Open Data (LOD)”

Here’s a link to 201 slides from a pre-con tutorial titled, “Introduction to Linked Open Data (LOD)”, presented on September 2, 2013 at Dublin Core 2013 (DC-2013) in Lisbon, Portugal.

The instructor was Ivan Herman, Semantic Web Activity Lead at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). 

The goal of the tutorial is to introduce the audience into the basics of the technologies used for Linked Data. This includes RDF, RDFS, main elements of SPARQL, SKOS, and OWL. Some general guidelines on publishing data as Linked Data will also be provided, as well as real-life usage examples of the various technologies.
