About this Book
The current Web is mostly a collection of linked documents useful for human consumption. The evolving Web includes data collections that may be identified and linked so that they can be consumed by automated processes. The W3C approach to this is Linked Data and it is already used by Google, Facebook, IBM, Oracle, and government agencies worldwide.
Written to be immediately useful to Web developers, this book requires no previous exposure to Linked Data or Semantic Web technologies.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
