== Tips and Advice from the Community ==
==== from Karen Coyle ====
* Don't lean too heavily on Protege. Protege is very OWL-oriented and can lead one far astray. It's easy to click on check boxes without knowing what they really mean. Do as much development as you can without using Protege, and do your development in RDFS not OWL. Later you can use Protege to check your work, or to complete the code.
* Develop in ntriples or turtle but NOT rdf/xml. RDF differs from XML in some fundamental ways that are not obvious, and developing in rdf/xml masks these differences and often leads to the development of not very good ontologies.
