This will be a more advanced introduction to the Wikidata Query Service than the submission Query Wikidata - Basics Workshop, focusing on SPARQL. Attendees will learn what the underlying data model of the query service is, how SPARQL works and how to write their own queries.
- What will attendees take away from this session?
- How to write SPARQL queries
- How Wikidata maps to RDF
- Slides or further information
I’ve held similar workshops at WikiCite 2017 (Vienna) and at Wikidata-Wahldaten-Workshop 2017 (Ulm). (The slides aren’t especially interesting, because the usual MO is that people start asking questions – “how do you do this? can you also do that?” – and I stop following the slides and instead keep answering questions.)
- Special requests
Ideally, attendees would be able to attend both Query Wikidata - Basics Workshop and this workshop, in that order (the basics workshop first).
