I’ve been asked by a lot of people how to build a website that is semantic web compliant. The general impression is that it is a lot of hard work and that it’s pretty useless right now. Obviously I disagree – It’s not that hard, it involves learning a few new things, which is not different to what you have to do when coding web 2.0 or 1.0 sites, and it is going to become very necessary. The semantic web is an extension of web 3.0 and without it a lot of new developments are not going to be possible. It is a foundation for things to come, like all the other technology that has enabled web 2.0 sites such as Ajax which is a fundamental building block.
In this tutorial I explain how you go about preparing your site for web 3.0, making it semantic web compliant. I also give you a load of tools that can help you do that.
