Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems
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. 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. We recently interviewed the instructor, Robert Chavez, to provide some further detail about this series of classes: http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/news/?p=324
Courses in the series:
- Introduction to XML
- Transforming and Querying XML: An introduction to the 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
Courses are $175 and run four weeks in length. These courses work best if taken in sequence, as the sequence builds on knowledge gained, but we have no formal prerequisites in place. The first course starts August 5th. There are discounts available if you register for the whole series.
