Lightning Talks

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to present for 10 minutes on a topic of their choosing. You may show off your Drupal site, ask some questions of the audience, give a module demonstration, share some marketing ideas for Drupal, and so on. Just keep it brief. No expertise or planning required - just do it.


After the meetup, some of us will continue the conversation over dinner at MIT's Muddy Charles Pub. We will likely pre-order some pizza so it meets us there. We'll take a count about half way through the meeting.

Please plan on bringing $10 to participate in pre-ordering food and some drinks.

Lin Clark's wonderful SPARQL Views which I used for the demo (check the second article below for instructions on how to set it up).

IBM developerWorks articles: The Semantic Web, Linked Data and Drupal, Part 1 Expose your data using RDF, Part 2 Combine linked datasets with Drupal 7 and SPARQL Views

We'll be meeting this Saturday for an RDF code sprint in Cambridge, sign up or contact me if you are interested in joining us.

Linked Open Data puzzle

Just came across this nice diagram, summarizes pretty well what we talked about on Tuesday night, with all the layers around RDF and SPARQL:
