Brian Sletten's 3-day REST and Resource-Oriented Architecture Bootcamp provides a broad, example-driven and compelling vision of computing's future. Organisations are struggling with data integration solutions that operate at the wrong level of abstraction or are shackled to legacy systems with no idea of how to modernize incrementally. Their service-oriented architectures decompose business processes into services without the ability to identify and protect the information that flows through these services. In this course, you will learn how the technical and business value of Web semantics is available and useful today behind firewalls as well as on the public Web.

This course will also help you understand how tensions between the business and technical sides of the house can be mediated by adopting technologies that provide information-focused, business-friendly solutions that grow with the organisation and its changing business needs.

Through plenty of intensive practical exercises, you will learn how to apply resource-oriented technologies to solve existing data management, integration and knowledge-sharing problems. Through practical exercises you will also gain the skills required to integrate legacy and next-generation systems, whilst protecting information by controlling its access from different contexts. You will also be exposed to the future of the Web that is being adopted by search engine companies, retailers, governments, the publishing industry and more to enable Webs of Data, not just Webs of Documents.


  • Explain the Web and Web architecture at a deeper level
  • Apply Web and Semantic Web technologies in the Enterprise and make them work together
  • Create good, long-lived logical names (URIs) for information and services

  • Query RDF and non-RDF datastores with the SPARQL query language
  • Weave machine processable information into documents via RDFa
