How to Convince Your Company to Embrace Web Standards - SxSW Interactive 2006

One of several microformats Microformats events.

We'll be presenting the ModuleT microformat as part of our panel at SXSWi 2006. It's not clear how much time we'll have to talk about it, but we'll definitely show off the demo and the format.

Session Details


Please add your name here if you are attending SXSW Interactive (whether you are speaking or not), and plan on attending the panel. See [2006-03-13-sxsw-microformats Tantek's panel page] for a list of folks attending the conference.

Short Summary

Web developers the world over understand the benefits that standards-based development provide, but how do you get management or a client to understand as well? A small band of committed geeks got AOL and Time Inc. to embrace Web standards, not only in the Development organization, but throughout the company -- including Design and Senior Management. Come learn how they did it, and how you can do it too.

We'll also be showing some new stuff that shows the progress we've made at AOL since the geeks started taking over, including the use of Microformats and our efforts to develop our own.
