Nach der Pause gibt es wieder Inhalte. Heute in der Sendung: Microformats, Design Redux von der Webseite des Weissen Hauses, Rockmusik und viel Wissenswertes.
http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/MIX/MIX11/EXT19 Microformats are simple HTML design patterns for adding semantics to your web content. With additional semantic meaning, your content becomes more findable, extensible, standards-compliant and usable. And when built on a solid foundation of Plain Old Semantic Markup (POSH), your content also becomes more accessible. Emily Lewis, author of Microformats Made Simple, will discuss the benefits of microformats, as well as tools and resources to help you start publishing right away. But the focus will be on the practical application of microformats using POSH: link-based microformats, XFN, hCard and hCalendar. Emily will also discuss what HTML5 means for microformats, particularly microdata and the new semantic elements.
Google, via its rich snippets, has reported that microformats has a 94% usage share (as compared with RDFa etc.). So how does the future look for microformats? In this session, we’ll look closely at real problems with implementing microformats in HTML5 and how this can be done, and whether there will be a continuing place for them. We’ll also look at emerging technologies and techniques, such as RelMeAuth and discuss advanced user techniques. As Microformats passes through it’s 5th birthday, we’ll discuss the highs and lows of the project.
