I'm honored and excited to be giving a three-hour microformats workshop next Friday, and I hope you can join me!

The Workshop Summits
Microformats Workshop Summit
Friday, January 15, 2010
9:00 am – 12 noon, CT
Individual ticket: $250.00
Meeting room: $700.00

Be There Without Being There

The workshop is part of Environments for Humans' online summit series, The Workshop Summits.

Yep! Online! That means you don't have to go anywhere. You can sit in the comfort of your own home (or office, or favorite coffee joint or whatever) and learn everything I can tell you about microformats in three hours. All you need is a computer and an internet connection. You can participate with me and other attendees via live chat.

Sound good? Yeah, I think so too.

So go register. Now. And, just because I love you, save 10% off of registration (both individual tickets and meeting rooms) with the discount code WKSHOPEMILYL.

What You Can Expect

Three hours gives me a lot of time to cover microformats, from the general to the specific.

You'll learn the basics of microformats:

  • The history microformats; what they are and what they aren't
  • The foundations of microformats, including POSH
  • How to identify web content suited for microformats

You'll also learn why you should be using microformats:

  • User experience enhancements
  • More meaningful search
  • Standards
  • Tools available that leverage microformats

And you'll get your hands dirty with exercises to help you publish microformats right away:

  • Elemental microformats, including XFN
  • Compound microformats, including hCard, hCalendar
  • Authoring tools
  • Validation tools

But That's Not All …

My microformats workshop is just one of four great workshops in the The Workshop Summits next week. You should also check out:

And that discount code I gave you (WKSHOPEMILYL) … you can use that to save 10% on the other three workshops as well.

Don't miss out on this chance to hear highly-focused and relevant content from some of today's leading experts … and me! Register now!

P.S. Aarron Walter is offering a free pass to all four workshops. Check it.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
