About This Webinar

Aired Live on: October 17, 2017 @ 11:30 am ET

SHACL (SHAPES Constraint Language) is a powerful, recently released W3C standard for data modeling, ontology design, data validation, inferencing and data transformation. SHACL is based on RDF and SPARQL. The design of SHACL is heavily inspired by SPIN (which originated from TopQuadrant) and IBM’s Resource Shapes and therefore inherits a wealth of practical experience, solving real-world problems and “getting the job done”

Who Should Attend: Data Modelers, Ontology Developers, Project Managers, Architects and Developers working on or considering projects that use Linked Data, ontologies or any RDF-based technologies.

In this webinar, we will describe and demonstrate key aspects of SHACL:

  • Using SHACL for data modeling
  • Using SHACL for data validation
  • Extending SHACL
  • SHACL Rules
  • SHACL and Linked Data
  • SHACL and OWL – differences, similarities and co-existence
