Event Description

Webuquerque in October


UPDATE! Recap of this event is now available and includes video, slide deck and photos.


Microformats are simple, open design patterns based on existing standards — HTML — that are used to add semantics to common web content, such as that about people, places, events and links.


More than semantic meaning, though, microformats have a wide range of benefits, including SEO, standards compliance and extensible data publishing. Some of the biggest sites on the Web today use microformats: Google, Yahoo!, Twitter and Facebook, to name a few. And you can too!


In this presentation, you will learn the basics you need to start publishing microformats on your own web site. Local microformats expert and Webuquerque co-manager, Emily Lewis, will discuss the history and basic premise of microformats, and will show examples of common microformats. She will also demonstrate some of the tools available that leverage microformats for machine data.

Presentation to be followed by socializing at Uptown for those folks who want to stick around.
