The Linked Data Platform (LDP) is a recent W3C standard for Linked Data. It brings REST to Linked Data by defining a standard way to access, create, and update RDF resources over HTTP. With this new capability, businesses can use Linked Data for data integration in read/write mode. This webinar introduces the standard, explaining what is in it and how it fits with other standards like SPARQL.

- Knows Hypertext Transfer Protocol, or HTTP (1991+), as the basic technology for resolving hyperlinks and transferring data on the World Wide Web.
- Knows Representational State Transfer, or REST (2000) as a software architectural style whereby browsers can exchange data with web servers, typically on the basis of well-known HTTP actions.
- Understands that Linked Data (2006) extended the notion of a web of documents (the Web) to a notion of a web of finer-grained data (the Linked Data cloud).
- Knows the "five stars" of Open Data: put data on the Web, preferably in a structured and preferably non-proprietary format, using URIs to name things, and link to other data.
