The objective of this paper is to help scientific application developers who want to adopt the continuous stream of new community vocabularies  to help make their data sharable, self-describable, and easily understood. To achieve this we suggest semantic vocabulary and application integration best practices and discuss the tradeoffs of encoding vocabularies through code versus deriving code from vocabularies.
