Excerpt

I will talk about the process of developing a microformats2 parser and how to use the tools that already exist to start publishing and consuming them today.

Description

microformats are carefully designed HTML class names that extend the semantics of HTML and enable authors to publish higher semantic fidelity content such as people, organizations, events, locations, blog posts, reviews, recipes, and vendor specific data. microformats are simple and easy to read and write. Anyone that can add classes to HTML can create or modify a microformats API.

microformats2 improves ease of use and implementation for both publishers and consumers. Parsers have been partially or fully implemented in Ruby, Node, and PHP. I will talk about the process of developing a microformats2 parser and how to use the tools that already exist to start publishing and consuming them today.
