microformats2 & HTML5: The Next Evolutionary Step For Web Data

A session at HTML5DevConf Spring 2013

Tuesday 2nd April, 2013

11:40am to 12:30pm (PST)

New HTML5 elements and microformats give us a simple way to represent web data without additional URLs, file formats, or callbacks. Microformats2 and HTML5 improvements bring better accessibility, simpler markup, improved semantics, and a direct mapping to JSON APIs for data consumers.

Millions of web sites use microformats to make their data available. Other approaches have emerged as well (e.g. RDFa, microdata, OGP, schema, Twitter Cards). Tantek will discuss which microformats to use for search engines and for public APIs.
