Further opportunities for study

We hope you’ve enjoyed this course!

Are you interested in learning more about Linked Data, SPARQL, or the Semantic Web? Here we discuss a number of study and training opportunities.

The material is based on the EUCLID project and we recommend the free iBook available from that website as a great source for further self-study. It is also available in ePUB and Kindle formats, as well as an HTML version available directly on the site.

For more content related to data, and in particular ‘data science’, the European Data Science Academy project, which is behind the creation of this course, is developing a range of courses on Big Data, Data Management, Machine Learning, Analytics, Visualisation and more.
