Emily Lewis Builds the Web One MicroFormat at a Time
Carl and Richard talk to Emily Lewis about HTML5, CSS3, Microformats, and general web development topics. Emily calls herself a 'standardista' and demonstrates that in the conversation, talking about the advantage of using schemas to identify different types of data in your web pages. Could this be the return of XML schemas in a way that makes sense?
Emily Lewis is a freelance web designer (http://emilylewisdesign.com) of the standardista variety, which means she gets geeky about things like semantic markup and CSS, usability and accessibility. As part of her ongoing quest to spread the good word about standards, she writes about web design on her blog, A Blog Not Limited (http://ablognotlimited.com/), and is the author of Microformats Made Simple (http://microformatsmadesimple.com/) and a contributing author for the forthcoming HTML5 Cookbook (http://oreilly.com/catalog/0636920016038). She's also a guest writer for ScriptJunkie (http://scriptjunkie.com/), .NET Magazine (http://www.netmagazine.com/) and MIX Online (http://visitmix.com/).
In addition to loving all things web, Emily is passionate about community building and knowledge sharing. She co-founded and co-manages Webuquerque, the New Mexico Adobe User Group for Web Professionals, and is a co-host of the The ExpressionEngine Podcast. Emily also speaks at conferences and events all over the country, including SXSW, MIX, In Control, Voices That Matter, New Mexico Technology Council, InterLab and the University of New Mexico.
