Learning SPARQL with Interactive Tutorials

By , · 1 minute read

We know SPARQL is unfamiliar to many new Stardog users, so we built live tutorials into Studio and Sandbox to help you learn the SPARQL syntax. Click on the new bookmark icon in the left navigation and select the SPARQL tutorial to get started.

Running Live Queries

The best way to learn is by doing, so we’ve provided the ability to run live queries against actual sample datasets around movies and music that we’ve pre-populated.

I recommend you walk through the basics of SELECT, ASK, DESCRIBE and CONSTRUCT queries on the sample dataset, and don’t skip finding out how Paul McCartney and Kanye West are related using shortest path queries.

You can reset the sample databases back to their original state whenever you choose, so you can go nuts experimenting as you learn to create more complex queries.
