This session demonstrates how all of the world’s knowledge may be semantically navigated by a web application that utilizes the facilities of Wikimedia.org projects (e.g. Wikipedia and Wikidata). The web application was created specifically for this session, and demonstrates technologies that include Java, HTML5, Spring Data, Neo4j, Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry. The application runs in the cloud and contains/leverages several microservices. We'll walk through lots of code during this session.
