HTML 5 has introduced us to the Canvas API, 2D graphics and the pleasures of plugin-free video and audio playback. One of the next hurdles we will face is native support for 3D graphics for simulations, visualizations and games.
This will be an example-driven workshop that will cover the basics of 3D graphics, OpenGL and where it is going on the Web.
We are far from the early days of ugly HTML. We have sophisticated visualization tools available to us now to help our users consume complex data in attractive and informative ways.
Come hear how you can adopt these visualization systems (calling them libraries is inappropriate) today.
This talk will introduce:
- SVG in the Browser
- Reusable widgets from the Simile Project
Many people are drawn to the ideas of REST but aren't sure how to take the next steps. This workshop will help get you to a comfortable place by introducing the concepts and walking through a series of exercises designing REST APIs from a variety of domains.
This workshop will span two session periods but is one effort. Please plan on coming to both.
We will break up into teams and tackle the various aspects of a solid, stable, evolvable REST API design. This will not be a tutorial in particular REST implementations (Jersey, Restlet, etc.). The ideas will transcend specific technologies although we will talk about some particular choices.
The Web is changing faster than you can imagine and it is going to continue to do so. Webs of Documents are giving way to machine-processable Webs of Information. We no longer care about data containers, we only care about data and how it connects to what we already know.
Perhaps the concepts of the Semantic Web initiative are new to you. Or perhaps you have been hearing for years how great technologies like RDF, SPARQL, SKOS and OWL are and have yet to see anything real come out of it.
Whether you are jazzed or jaded, this workshop will provide you with the understanding of a technological tidal wave that is heading in your direction.
In this workshop, we will:
Explain the Web and Web architecture at a deeper level Apply Web and Semantic Web technologies in the Enterprise and make them work together Integrate structured and unstructured information Create good, long-lived logical names (URIs) for information and services Use the Resource Description Framework (RDF) to integrate documents, services and databases Use popular RDF vocabularies such as Dublin Core, FOAF, DOAP Query RDF and non-RDF datastores with the SPARQL query language Model and Do Inference with the Web Ontology Language (OWL)
Bring your laptops. This is a hands-on workshop.
