RDFa is the bridge between the Web of Documents, targeting at human users, and the Web of Data, focusing on machines. Not only due to the recent uptake of RDFa (Digg, Yahoo!, etc.), learning how and where to use RDFa is essential. This tutorial will introduce the usage of RDFa in real-world use cases and will enable the attendees to work with RDFa both on the client as on the server side. We will create, publish and consume RDFa-marked-up data in the course of the tutorial and discuss advanced aspects, such as dynamic content handling. There are no pre-requisites for participation in the tutorial other than a familiarity with the basics of the (Semantic) Web such as URIs, RDF, XHTML, and SPARQL.
