Thanks to our friends at SemTechBiz (big ups to Eric Franzon) and amazing LODLAMers around the world who volunteered to put on sessions, we were able to put together an amazing prototype for something we hope to take on the road in 2015: the first LODLAM Training Day. We had an incredible lineup of people sharing their real-world approaches to both publishing and reusing Linked Open Data in library, archive, and museum settings. The idea with the Training Day is to get into hands-on applications and examples rather than conceptual talks, and begin giving people the means to share and create within the “web of data.”
We were bootstrapping it a bit, but we did put together videos of the talks (with the exception of Rob’s, in which we very sadly lost the last half of his talk due to camera fail), and everyone shared their slides.
You can see all of the talks in a Youtube Channel, or see the individual talks embedded below with links to their slides or examples.
