HTML5 Workshop by Molly E. Holzschlag OnlineJanuary 14, 2010 from 9 to 12pm
This workshop focuses on HTML5 and why it is becoming more important to understand, and even put to use. As the open standard for Web applications, HTML5 takes markup to a new level, requiring Web developers and designers to re-examine the way they've worked in the past, and will be working in days and months to come.
Presented by Molly E. Holzschlag, Web Standards advocate, evangelist, and developer relations team member at Opera Software, the workshop helps to demystify HTML5 as well as provide actual insight into how to begin using aspects of the language today.

Microformats Workshop by Emily Lewis OnlineJanuary 15, 2010 from 9 to 12pm
Microformats are HTML-based design patterns that add semantics to common web content, such as that about people, places, events and links. More than semantic meaning, though, microformats have a wide range of benefits, including SEO, standards compliance and extensible data publishing. Some of the biggest sites on the Web today use microformats: Google, Yahoo!, Twitter and Facebook, to name a few. And you can, too, after taking this workshop presented by Emily Lewis, author of Microformats Made Easy.

Testimonials from Previous Summits
“The Summit series is a great way to allow everyone access to the same speakers and talent that those who have the means had access to in the past. Future conferences need to take into consideration that not everyone has the means nor time to travel. The Summit series addresses this in a comfortable and professional manner.”
“The Summit Series has allowed us to provide advanced, practical training by top-flight presenters in a cost-effective manner to the UF Web Community. The content is relevant, up-to-date and, most importantly, actionable. I've not found another web conference that even comes close.”
Web Manager, University of Florida Web Administration
