When I show developers Freebase and the query language MQL, the first thing they often try to do is extract all the info they can out of the database for a generic topic.
This is actually quite a good learning experience, as you have to learn lots of MQL concepts:
- How “*” expands (default values v objects, type specified or not)
- Multiple queries v nested queries
I had been keeping my own notes, but I thought they might be worth sharing so I whipped up a nice stylesheet and here they are:
Still lots of uncompleted TODO points but I’d be interested in your feedback. Is this something worth working on?
