Does Free Code Camp cover any/all of the following XML, XSLT, XQuery, RDF, RDFa, Structured Data Vocabularies, Linked Data, SPARQL?
I know about some courses in XML and RDF based systems and it’s relevant to my career as a librarian, but it’s not something I’m required to learn or something I need at the moment, but I’d like to not wait until it’s needed and miss an opportunity for advancement.
I’m slowly working through the Free Code Camp curriculum and really thankful for the opportunity it provides. However, at the end of the day I’m a librarian and love what I do, I’m bad at math and not great at coding stuff, but I graduated with an MLIS with a 4.0 GPA and want to get a dual PhD in Religion and Information Science. But at the end of all that, I would still consider myself just a librarian. So I don’t really need to know how to code, but there are lots of reasons that any coding knowledge would be useful. I took a metadata course as an elective for my MLIS and found that interesting even if parts of the course were over my head.
I never got the chance to formally take a cataloging course so I am also currently working through the Certificate in Cataloging and Technical Services offered by Library Juice Academy (LJA) which offers a lot of amazing courses. I’m taking a couple years post-MLIS to fill any gaps in my library science skills, develop some level of coding knowledge (as well as improve my Ukrainian) before I go for a masters in theology focusing on church history and then the PhD.
You can find the XML and RDF certificate on the LJA website. We can’t post links to them here or I would… Is it something that would complement what I’m learning here or is it just superfluous in my case? Like I said, LJA is a great resource if anyone is interested. I’m working on one certificate not to mention I want to take a GIS course through them, but is the XML and RDF certificate going to teach me considerably more than I will learn here at Free Code Camp?
