Register now for LODLAM Training Day August 19

We’re excited to announce that registration is now open for LODLAM Training Day 2014 at the 10th Annual Semantic Technology & Business Conference (SemTechBiz), August 19, 2014 in San Jose, California.  We have an amazing lineup of hands on training sessions with LODLAM practitioners from around the world.  Thanks to the generosity of our friends at SemTechBiz, the all-day workshop series is available at the ridic price of $75, and you can even upgrade to attend the whole conference–at half off!

Registration is limited and will be first come first serve.  Please spread the word–all are welcome and both morning and afternoon streams are aimed at all levels of users, and even if you come in knowing nothing about LODLAM, you’ll walk away with ways to get started using open source tools. If you already have experience, you’ll have an opportunity to hone your skills and work with other practitioners.

Register here:

Special thanks to everyone who stepped up to lead sessions and help organize, and especially to Eric Franzon at SemTechBiz for making this possible!  And feel free to give me a shout if you have any questions.
