Open Coffee Galway January 2010


January 2010 at Open Coffee GalwayThe first Galway Open Coffee Galway 2010 will be taking place at the Hotel Meyrick.

It will be held upstairs in the Executive suite in the Hotel.

This month there will be a talk given by Liam O’ Morain of the Digital Enterprise Research Institute.

Liam will be giving his talk on Linked Data.

Wikipedia defines Linked Data as “a term used to describe a recommended best practice for exposing, sharing, and connecting pieces of data, information, and knowledge on the Semantic Web using URIs and RDF.”

As the Web shifts away from a Web of Documents towards a Web of Data Liam’s talk aims to give an insight into this coming shift with the Web.

Linked Data will affect your business on the Web if you have a website. To find out more about both Linked Data and the future of the Web the talk will be held at 11am Saturday morning, January 30th, at Hotel Meyrick.

Hope to see you there.


These are just a few of the datasets that are being connected and reused on the Web.

    I won’t be able to make it but I am new to Galway and I am going to organizing a Galway Python Meetup this Wednesday 3rd February at 7pm. More information can be found on the Python Ireland website at .

    I am hoping that some of your members would be interested in attending the Python meetup and if you could enform them of it at your meetup. It would be most appreciated.

    I hope to make your next meetup,
