Take Your Markup to Eleven
Webuquerque in February ‘11
This event has passed. However, the recap is available!
HTML. The foundation of almost every single web site and, yet, one of the most overlooked languages.
It has the power to make your sites more accessible. To help search engines find your site. To make your content sharable and syndicatable. It even has the power to save you time and money.
But, of course, not just any HTML can do all this. Your HTML has to be one louder.
Our very own markup expert, Emily Lewis, will show you how to take your markup to eleven with these advanced HTML techniques:
- Designing pages efficiently with semantic markup
- Deciding what parts of HTML5 work for you
- Structuring page layout with new HTML5 semantic elements
- Adding more meaning with microformats (and take a peek at HTML5's microdata)
- Implementing forward-thinking accessibility with WAI-ARIA
You'll see practical examples and learn best practices, so you can immediately start writing markup that goes to eleven. And, yes, there will be more Spinal Tap references.
