Subject: [DHIG] Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems

Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems

(Apologies for cross-posting. Please forward as appropriate.)

In this 6-course certificate program, you will gain competency as a coder in XML and RDF-based systems that create, transform, manage, and disseminate content and metadata. Typically, these are the structures at the heart of content management systems, repositories, and digital libraries, as well as the upcoming Bibframe format. Topics covered include XML fundamentals, XPath, DTDs and Schemas, standard markup languages, XSLT and Xquery, the semantic web, RDFa and RDFa Lite, RSS, ontologies and linked data, and the SPARQL semantic query language and protocol.

The series is currently underway, and will start again February 2015. The listings below are for the sequence restarting then. 

Courses in the series:

Introduction to XML

Transforming and Querying XML with XSLT and Xquery

Introduction to the Semantic Web

RDFa1.1 (RDFa and RDFa Lite) and RSS

Ontologies and Linked Data

The SPARQL semantic query language and protocol - the Semantic Web in action

We are offering an optional 7th class, "SPARQL, Part 2: writing effective SPARQL queries and building a Linked Data data store."

These courses work best if taken in sequence, as the sequence builds on knowledge gained, but we have no formal prerequisites in place. If you need to take them out of sequence, feel free to contact us about your situation.

You can register for all six courses in the certificate program, at a 10% discount. The "Register" button on the web page for the series will register you for the sequence of classes that starts in February 2015.
