Quite a lot is known and written about the use of Linked Data to publish data on the world-wide web. Less is known and written about the use of Linked Data as an architectural pattern for the APIs of applications or in their implementation. For some time now our teams have explored this topic, first initiating the Linked Data Platform workgroup at the W3C and recently creating an open-source project with libraries that facilitate the development of new Linked Data applications. This talk will explore the use of Linked Data for applications using the open-source project to illustrate concepts. We will explore the design and implementation of the open-source project itself. Attendees will gain a clear understanding of the benefits and challenges of using Linked Data as an architectural pattern for application development, and should leave with the knowledge necessary to quickly and easily develop Linked Data applications of their own.
