This joint tutorial of the LOD2 consortium will give an overview on the area of creating, managing and using Linked Data sources. As a prerequisite to the main tutorial part, we give an overview of the life cycle of Linked Data usage and its challenges as well as the LOD2 software stack, which is an integrated distribution of aligned tools supporting the life-cycle of Linked Data from extraction, authoring/creation over enrichment, interlinking, fusing to visualization and maintenance. Based on this more foundational explanations, we present a detailed insight into the usage of LOD2 stack both with practical and non- practical parts. More specifically, we present tools and usage scenarios for the following Linked Data life cycle tasks: extraction (Triplify / D2R), storage and querying (Openlink Virtuoso), authoring (OntoWiki), interlinking (Silk / LIMES) as well as enrichment and repair (ORE). In addition to that, we present the LOD2 stack demonstrator which integrates these and other LOD2 tools for a better user experience.
