We are pleased to announce a pre-release version of BrightstarDB 1.4 is now available on NuGet. For more details please see the announcement post over at the BrightstarDB blog.
Following on from the previous post about Visualizing data in Excel, I decided to have a look at how easy it would be to load data from a SPARQL endpoint into an Excel Power Map.
Over the last year and a half, the founders of NetworkedPlanet worked together on building BrightstarDB, a unique native .NET triple store with support for MVC application models and LINQ. BrightstarDB was released a couple of months ago as an open-source project on GitHub where we continue to work on extending and improving it. We hope that being open-source with a very permissive MIT license will enable .NET developers to experiment with and use BrightstarDB in all sorts of projects, large and small. However, we realize that for some projects the lack of commercial support for a component such as BrightstarDB can be a deal-breaker.
