"HTML5 & Microformats 2:
The Next Evolutionary Step For Web Data"
with Tantek Çelik
Mozilla, W3C Invited Board Member
Standards Lead, International Speaker & Author, An Event Apart Speaker
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.
Pick an element, any element. Style it. No IDs. No classes. No jQuery necessary. We'll learn all the new features of CSS3 selectors that enable you to select this DOM node, that DOM node, and even imaginary DOM nodes based on attributes, relation to other elements, location in the DOM, or just an element's mere existence. The possibilities are endless, if you know how to use the tools in your tool box. Today's tool is CSS3 selectors.
