Training

Get your team rapidly up to speed with modelling, publishing and exploiting linked data to design, build and use complete linked data solutions.

Our training courses cover both the fundamental principles of linked data and the practical development and use of linked data and semantic technology solutions. Our courses have been developed based on our extensive experience helping organisations from the public, commercial and voluntary sector publish and work with open data.   These courses are well-suited for organisations developing or enhancing their data strategies and needing to grow internal expertise.

Epimorphics offers a range of training courses to support people wishing to design and publish their data on the web as linked data.

Our training courses include: Introductions to Linked Data, Querying Linked Data using SPARQL and Data modelling and development workshop. We also offer in-depth technical training courses tailored to support your needs.

Bespoke Training and Mentoring

We can adapt our core training offerings to meet your specific needs and put together courses on other topics. We also offer follow up support packages to help your staff apply what they have learned.

1-2 days

LINKED DATA MODELLING AND ONTOLOGY DEVELOPMENT

After a general introduction to the principles of linked data modelling, attendees are guided through the process of developing a model for a familiar domain. Using this example attendees learn how to apply common modelling patterns, ontology components and standard tools that they can reuse in their own work.

1 - 2 days

BESPOKE LINKED DATA TRAINING & SUPPORT

We can adapt our core training offerings to meet your specific needs and put together courses on other topics, for example 'publishing statistical data as linked open data', ‘The Linked Data API and Elda”. We also offer follow up support packages to help your staff apply what they have learned.
