I finally found time to attend one of the Oxford SWIG sessions last night and had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
I gave a couple of presentations which I’ve posted to slideshare, and which I’ll embed below.
The first was a general introduction and mini-demonstration of Twinkle. I gave a basic overview of the key features and showed how the configuration drives the user interface:
The second talk as about the different SPARQL query forms. I started by asking the question “why are there four different query forms?” and then proceeded to examine each one and talk about the benefits and their applied use.
The talk was streamed online via Yahoo Live which was a nice touch as one SWIGger was at home with a broken ankle (get well soon Katie!). It’d be nice to see more use of free video streaming at other events.
