This upcoming February, I'm heading to Orlando, Florida.
No. Not for a vacation (although I do expect to have a fantastic time). I'll be speaking about microformats at the In Control Conference, alongside some of my favorite web designers and developers in the industry.
Not Your Typical Conference
The In Control Conference, which runs February 21– 22, 2011, is a much smaller and more intimate conference than you'll typically find on the circuit (do we even have a circuit?).
The sessions are actually workshops, with about two hours devoted to each topic and speaker. And each workshop builds on the next, so you not only get the great details, but also the big picture.
Also, attendance is limited to a perfectly-sized "get to know everyone" group. Speaking from experience, this not only makes it easier to get questions answered, but also to make great connections.
Get Your Microformats Fix
I'm extremely excited about my presentation, because it will be great to talk about microformats again (it's been awhile). And it is even better that I'll have more time to go deep into the topic. Here's a taste of what you can expect from me:
- Microformats basics and benefits
- Live demonstrations of tools and services that leverage microformats
- Three easy steps to publish hCard and hCalendar
- What HTML5's microdata means for microformats
- Embracing more semantics: POSH and WAI-ARIA
