The Truth About Metadata and Schemas

Jeff Whitfield

Ever heard of metadata and schemas? Have you used Schema.org? If not, then this presentation is for you. Whether you're a designer, developer, SEO expert, content writer, or contributing to the web in some other way, learning about what schemas are will enhance your understanding of the semantic web.  In this presentation, we'll start by revisiting the history of HTML, talk about some of the roadblocks with HTML5, learn a bit about accessibility standards, and then dive into schemas. We'll talk about the history of schemas, how they're different from metaformats, and why Bing, Google, and Yahoo! are backing this standard.
