Excerpt

microformats are published on millions of sites, providing a simple API for the data on those pages with no additional URLs, file formats, callbacks etc. Similar approaches have subsequently emerged and grown as well, like RDFa and microdata. This talk discusses lessons learned in all HTML data in general, and how those lessons have been incorporated into microformats 2.0, the latest in the evolution of web data.

Description

In 2005, microformats brought real-world semantics to the web for the rest of us, now supported by millions of sites, numerous tools and search engines. Additional similar approaches subsequently emerged like RDFa and microdata.

This talk discusses lessons learned in the use of such semantic HTML data markup technologies, and how those lessons have been incorporated into the latest evolutionary iteration for marking up data in HTML: microformats 2.0.
