1. Free Web Seminar: A New Python Client for AllegroGraph RDFStore

Thursday, October 9: 10:00 - 11:00 am Pacific

The topic of this webinar is using a Python client interface to the
AllegroGraph Server. Franz has now developed a full set of library
calls for Python-based applications. This library enables Python users
to experience the same convenience and power enjoyed by Java
applications using the Sesame library to access AllegroGraph. The
Python library mimics the API defined for Sesame, using similar method
names and argument conventions. Thus, if you already have used the
Sesame library, the Python library will seem like an old friend.
However, we have also chosen to exploit Python features such as
keyword arguments and iterator conventions that are absent in Java,
resulting in a library with a genuine Python flavor. The webinar will
take users through a series of examples that demonstrate the range of
features now available to Python users.
