10 Years PLDN
Platform Linked Data Netherlands (PLDN) exists 10 years in September! Started in 2012 as Pilot Linked Open Data (PiLOD), and continued one year later as Platform Implementatie Linked Open Data (still with the abbreviation PILOD) and as of 2015 known in the global linked data community as Platform Linked Data Netherlands (PLDN).
By now we are over 100 events further, an active community has emerged with over 1000 participants, there have been many PLDN working groups that have developed best practice and we have published a booklet almost every year, of which the Parels booklets are the best known. And we have also developed the Play-a-LOD linked data game, which is unique in the world and allows us to explain the basic concepts of linked data in a playful and easy way.
Results to be proud of and that should be celebrated! That’s why on Tuesday 27 September at Beeld en Geluid in Hilversum we are organising our 10 Year PLDN Jubilee Event. We have put together a nice and varied programme for you, where you can be inspired by the latest developments in the field of linked data, gain new insights, network and celebrate this milestone with us. The central theme of linked data and of our PLDN community is the meaningful connection of people and of data. And we will continue to do so, especially since we see a strong growth in the use of knowledge graphs, where we can describe and define data sources of different domains and organisations in a uniform way and connect them to each other, making the sharing and reuse of data easier.
