|About my books:|
From the reviews: "As the title suggests, this book is about the semantic Web, the standards and technologies that allow computers to understand the meaning of information posted online. ...this book covers numerous aspects of the semantic Web in significant detail ... . primarily intended for software developers, researchers, and practicing professionals who want to gain expertise in the fundamentals quickly. It may also be useful for students taking courses on the semantic Web. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (M. B. DuBois, CHOICE, Vol. 48 (11), August, 2011)
“This book is a good starting point, especially since finding all of this information on the Web can be difficult. … for developers who are interested in establishing a toehold, this is a nice introduction that should serve for now.” (Jeffrey Putnam, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2011)
|Learning the Semantic Web|
The idea of the Semantic Web is not totally intuitive, it requires some long learning curve. It has several major components (such as RDF, RDFS, OWL, SPARQL, just to name a few) that are quite complex, and it is not easy to piece everything together to get a clear picture. My books will help you to conquer the learning curve with much ease, yet, if you are not planning to get the book for now, here are some of the best materials you can find to start your learning.
