Every structured exchange requires consensus about the structure. The Shape Expressions (ShEx) language captures these structures in an intuitive and powerful syntax. From metadata description (e.g. DDI) to data description (e.g. FHIR), ShEx provides a powerful schema language to develop, test and deploy shared models for RDF data. This tutorial will explore the utility and expressivity of ShEx.Presented with side-by-side examples of schema and data, the audience will see how to use ShEx to solve every-day problems. The presentation will use multiple implementations of ShEx in order to leave the participants with enough familiarity to get started using ShEx on their own.
