The W3C's Linked Data Platform (LDP) Working Group has published a document outlining best practices and guidelines for implementing Linked Data Platform servers and clients. The document was edited by Cody Burleson, Base22, and Miguel Esteban Gutiérrez and Nandana Mihindukulasooriya of the Ontology Engineering Group, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.
For those new to LDP, SemanticWeb.com has recently published the following materials:
WEBINAR: "Getting Started with the Linked Data Platform (LDP)" with LDP Working Group Chair, Arnaud Le Hors, IBM (pictured above presenting LDP work at the SemTechBiz conference last week).
ARTICLE: "Introduction to: Linked Data Platform" by Cody Burleson, Base 22
Those ready to dive into the nuts and bolts of the document will find detailed guidance on topics such as:
- Predicate URIs
- Use of relative URIs
- Hierarchy and container URIs
- Working with fragments
- Working with standard datatypes
- Representing relationships between resources
- Finding established vocabularies
...and much more. See the full document at http://www.w3.org/TR/ldp-bp/
SemanticWeb.com congratulates the Working Group on this step and looks forward to reporting on use cases and implementations of LDP.
