@wohnjalker Try @LearningSPARQL it's a good read. I also blog (less frequently than I should) on 25 Jun

@belett Un classique. En anglais et un peu long pour ce que je recherche mais cela reste une valeur sure. 13 Feb


@tmtn Ask @bobdc @LearningSPARQL that book has all the answers 13 Oct

@matthew_inamdar Just finished the @LearningSPARQL book! A brilliant read and definitely recommended. 31 Jul

What are the good books for learning SPARQL beyond @LearningSPARQL? 20 Jun

@rhizome Incredible feeling to have our ArtBase work used as an example by the author of Learning SPARQL himself 🥰* 23 May

@linkedktk I did read Working Ontologist which has a great intro but most I learned from @LearningSPARQL. I think it's important to get hands dirty fast and make sure what you model can be queried easily. If this is not the case you probably overengineered for your use case 27 Apr

@kushaldas Oh, just in case you want to learn SPARQL, the book @LearningSPARQL is the best resource I found :) 10 Feb

@epos I bought the dead-tree version of this to read at leisure when away from the computer. @LearningSPARQL

It now also lies on my desk as a reference. 30 Jan


@modelreduction #SPARQL is super powerful, and the book "Learning SPARQL":
by @bobdc via @OReillyMedia is an awesome resource covering many aspects of RDF querying. See also @LearningSPARQL 8 Dec

@RacNets The best way to learn RDF, SPARQL and LinkedData: Just do it. I'm building my first ontology and triple store for courses @MPI_EvolBio from scratch and heaving prepared with the excellent @LearningSPARQL by @bobdc: Hurray, it works! 22 Sep

@heald_j Does the BM still offer a SPARQL service ?
Might be useful, now the collection webpages use the same IDs.
(And yes, @bobdc 's book is excellent) 8 Jun

@NicoMatentzoglu Just re-read @LearningSPARQL despite working with the language for years and still got so much from it, again! Reading textbooks after years of practice is so useful, can’t stress this enough.22 May


@Aquacold1 .@LearningSPARQL by @bobdc was my go-to SPARQL reference guide when developing the @Aquacold1 linked data question answering prototype for my studies. An excellent guide to the language. 11 Dec

@andrecastro0o Where would I be without @LearningSPARQL ? Such a great guide! Could not recommend it more to those wanting to learn but #rdf #sparql #semanticweb 14 Nov

@Carlos_F_Enguix An Excellent down-to-earth intro to the SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language or SPARQL. Bob DuCharme’s book is a must-have for those interested in the Semantic Web. 27 Mar

@CharlesMatthe12 Can't agree that the @wikidata query service is hard to learn. I learned SPARQL from it (assisted by Bob's book); I have trained others from it. It takes a couple of hours to get started: in line with wiki thinking, there is a quick way in. 3 Feb 2020


@namedgraph Definitely get the @LearningSPARQL book :) I think he also would recommend this video:
As for the HTTP protocol, the standard can be found here:

@tmtn The single most perfect resource out there for SPARQL is @bobdc's @LearningSPARQL. Get your hands on that book. I have a hardcopy, with tear-soaked, dog-eared, annotated, highlighted pages and I have never been willing to lend my copy to anyone 17 Aug

@tmtn Yes the ProgrammingHistorian one, and buy the @LearningSPARQL book by @bobdc - it's *amazing* 24 Jul


@5555thats5fives this RDFS/OWL book feels dense... simple concepts are made difficult through unnecessary formality and "clarifications" borne not of the confusions that a fresh student might have but past technical debates between insiders. the o'reilly SPARQL book was way more straightforward 1 Aug

@KeithWheeles/ What I'm reading... com/Learning-SPARQL... 05 Mar

@tmtn cool. Fuseki is the one @bobdc uses in his amazing #SPARQL book (as I'm sure you already know). I love that book. 13 Feb

@novastaylor A great way to learn #RDF is with the @LearningSPARQL book by @bobdc. By learning how to query RDF with #SPARQL, you learn how it is all put together. Excellent book. 25 Jan


@safaribot People dig "Learning SPARQL, 2nd Edition" by Bob DuCharme on @safari https://www. library/view/learning-sparql-2nd/978144937144905 Nov 2017

@Michael_A_Gavin Reading your book literally right now 04 Nov 2017

@dominicbordelon i'm not really SPARQL-conversant, maybe one day i will be, but i like the "learning SPARQL" book by o'reilly 19 Jul

@vmdbks I'm repeating what others have said, but I recommend the @ProgHist tutorial and the @LearningSPARQL book. 19 Jul

@cm_harlow semantic web for the working on ontologist has a decent chapter on it. the o'reilly learning sparql book has gotten praise from colleagues 19 Jul

@PaulineData Recommended by @emcandre > Check out this book: "Learning SPARQL: Querying and Updating with 1 Apr


@ash_crow #vendredilecture : j'ai entamé @LearningSPARQL ... Fun fact : ce matin dans le métro un mec m'a vu le lire et m'a posé plein de questions... 7 Oct

@rossjones @LearningSPARQL 20% of the way through, all making sense so far. Great book. Thanks. 10 Sep

@garner@rossjones gizza shout if your want anything. I learned it in June, really enjoyed it (and the Ducharme book is great) 08 Sep

@garner @psd My bible was Learning SPARQL — that looks a bit more general, thanks. Given what I'm doing next week I should install Fuseki, though 4 Apr

@pumba_lt @ruthbrarian #RDF is not syntax, it's a data model - serializations are the syntax. I also recommend the @LearningSPARQL book. 22 Mar

@sf433 Learning SPARQL has been freeing; your RDF is now our RDF. Now I just need some better programming skills to go with the query language. 3 Aug
