Apache Stanbol has grown from a set of tools built within the IKS project to a versatile open source platform with an active community. Early adopters took advantage of the supportive community via the mailing list and technical documentation on the website, but with Stanbol maturing more and more people wanted to try out the technology.
My new book Instant Apache Stanbol minimizes the effort needed to get started with Apache Stanbol. Step by step recipes show how to solve real life use cases. Such as how to automatically annotate the contents from your traditional CMS and how to do reasoning on top of the data from the Linked Data Web.
While no particular knowledge or skills are required to get started more advanced recipes show how to develop new components for Apache Stanbol and how to create your own distribution. On the way you’ll learn more about the underlying technologies such as RDF, OSGi and JAX-RS but the focus is not the theory but getting things done.
