* '''Be completed in 5-10 minutes''' from start to finish, ''including'' setup time.  We are working under strict time constraints, and thus I must cut-off demonstrations at the 10 minute mark so that we have time for the remaining demonstrations.  If your demonstration stalls or appears to not work, we will move onto the next demo and if we have time, may come back, so be sure you have practiced your demo and are sure it will work (you can assume presence of a network, but being able to also run locally is a good thing). If you can keep your demo to 5 minutes and allow for a few minutes of quick audience Q&A that would be ideal.
 +
* '''Demonstrate end user benefit.'''  Showing the code that makes it behind the scenes and discussing the microformats used briefly is good, but strictly ''secondary'' to showing something working with actual microformat content.

-
 
-
I have deliberately kept a few of the demonstration/discussion slots open for new/latecomers/implementers to be able to demonstrate their cool microformat implementations.  If you have a useful and dazzling microformat implementation that you can successfully explain and demonstrate in 5-10 minutes please add your name, and brief explanation of what you plan to demonstrate, and we'll see if we can fit folks in.  Some of the criteria to help decide will include:
 
-
* Does the demo run *today*? (2006-02-26)
 
-
* Does it demonstrate a microformat not currently being demonstrated by the other demos? E.g. one or more of:
 
-
** [[hatom|hAtom]]
 
-
** [[hlisting-proposal|hListing]]
 
-
** [[hresume|hResume]]
 
-
** [[hreview|hReview]] (perhaps [http://judysbook.com Judy's Book])
 
-
** [[xfolk|xFolk]]
 
-
 
-
Proposed demos:
 
-
 
-
* Name, Company, title/summary, URL to working demo/download

Microformats panel at SXSW Interactive 2006

One of several microformats events. During the SXSWi 2006 conference, there was a Microformats panel where microformats implementers demonstrated and discussed microformats support in their tools and/or websites.

Earlier Description

Title: Microformats: Evolving the Web

Summary:

As the web design, development, IA, and blogging communities have adopted more and more valid semantic (X)HTML, two key realizations have emerged: there is a need to express common information building blocks on pages such as people, addresses, events, reviews etc., and (X)HTML lacks the built-in semantics to do so.

Microformats are a set of simple open data formats that provide an evolutionary approach to easily expressing such common building blocks on today's Web. In contrast to dedicated XML schemas, microformats for events or contact info are familar XHTML with semantic class names, making them trivial to embed in existing content, style with CSS, and interoperate with desktop applications.
