As part of my ongoing efforts for global microformats domination, I wrote a microformats tutorial for .net magazine — sold as Practical Web Design in the US. And, in my typically verbose fashion, I wrote too much.
Lucky for me (and the readers), it was turned into a two-parter. Part one of the tutorial appears in the June 2010 issue (#202). It provides a simple background on microformats, covering some of the core concepts, and then dives right into how to publish content with XFN and hCard.
Part 2 of the tutorial will appear in the July 2010 (#203) issue. It picks up where part 1 left off, covering the hCalendar microformat (including details about the value class pattern) and how to combine microformats for more semantic richness.
Pick up a copy of the magazine to get all the microformatty goodness. If you can't wait, whet your appetite with my Getting Semantic With Microformats blog series … and then go get the magazine.
