Ruth Tillman on 'Intro to RDF'

Awesome synopsis of previous notes by Ruth Kitchin Tillman.


  • Confirms RDF == “Resouce Description Framework”
    • Build triples in S, Pred, Objective triples
    • Subj: Book, URI, ISBN
    • Predicate: or, “Property” is an IRI that describes the relationship
    • Object: the complement, the value
    • SGH: Subject ~ the row for an entity in a database, that column is the predicate and the row / column intersection holds the value, the object
  • “RDF has no a singe [sic] set of syntactic requirements.” We serialize in multiple formats:
    • Turtle
    • N-Triples
    • RDF/XML
    • JSON-LD (et al.)
