Validating RDF data with SHACL

Setting some constraints--then violating them!

Last month, in The W3C standard constraint language for RDF: SHACL, I described the history of this new standard that lets us define constraints on RDF data and an open source tool that lets us identify where such constraints were violated. The presence of the standard and tools that let us implement the standard will be a big help to the use of RDF in production environments.
