    Review quote
    From the reviews: "As the title suggests, this book is about the semantic Web, the standards and technologies that allow computers to understand the meaning of information posted online. ... this book covers numerous aspects of the semantic Web in significant detail ... . primarily intended for software developers, researchers, and practicing professionals who want to gain expertise in the fundamentals quickly. It may also be useful for students taking courses on the semantic Web. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (M. B. DuBois, Choice, Vol. 48 (11), August, 2011) "This book is a good starting point, especially since finding all of this information on the Web can be difficult. ... for developers who are interested in establishing a toehold, this is a nice introduction that should serve for now." (Jeffrey Putnam, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2011)
    Back cover copy
    The Semantic Web represents a vision for how to make the huge amount of information on the Web automatically processable by machines on a large scale. For this purpose, a whole suite of standards, technologies and related tools have been specified and developed over the last couple of years, and they have now become the foundation for numerous new applications.A Developer s Guide to the Semantic Web helps the reader to learn the core standards, key components, and underlying concepts. It provides in-depth coverage of both the what-is and how-to aspects of the Semantic Web. From Yu s presentation, the reader will obtain not only a solid understanding about the Semantic Web, but also learn how to combine all the pieces to build new applications on the Semantic Web.Software developers in industry and students specializing in Web development or Semantic Web technologies will find in this book the most complete guide to this exciting field available today. Based on the step-by-step presentation of real-world projects, where the technologies and standards are applied, they will acquire the knowledge needed to design and implement state-of-the-art applications."
