SPARQL is a semantic query language for databases, often used to explore and retrieve data from public repositories. Useful as it is, if you’re not familiar with SPARQL, it can take a while to get used to. After a while of hunting around I found this good SPARQL tutorial series from Youtube user Dr Noureddin Sadawi which did an excellent job of explaining the basics.
The tutorial seems to be based on the book “Learning SPARQL“, and covers topics including:
- The RDF semantic data framework
- How to query public data sources
- Using the UNION key word to combine queries
