Open Source CMS Breakfast - Structured Data and Schemas for websites

This month, Peter Burnett introduces the use of structured data or "schemas" on our websites.

Many websites are generated from structured data, which is often stored in databases. When this data is formatted into HTML, it becomes difficult to recover the original structured data.

Many applications, especially search engines, can benefit from direct access to this structured data. On-page markup enables search engines to understand the information on web pages and provide richer search results in order to make it easier for users to find relevant information on the web. Markup can also enable new tools and applications that make use of the structure.

For more information, see schema.org.

    Very interesting meetup talk today by Peter Burnett - plenty of food for thought and, as ever plenty of food to eat too.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
