Get started with Markdown, the lightweight text format that allows you to create documents, rich text, or HTML markup using any plain text editor.
- [Voiceover] Hi there, this is Ray Villalobos and I want to welcome you to Up and Running with Markdown. In this short course, I'm gonna show you how to work with Markdown, a text format for creating documents, that is easy to read, easy to write and easy to convert into other formats. I'll start by showing you how to work with simple elements like emphasis, code snippets and paragraphs. Then, I'll show you how to work with other block elements like headlines and block quotes. I'll also show you how to work with more complex Markdown like lists and images.
And finally, I'll take about some of the extensions to the language like GitHub flavored Markdown to create fenced-in code blocks as well as tables. So let's get started with Up and Running with Markdown.
In this course, Ray Villalobos shows how to write common markdown syntax to create headlines, lists, tables, links, images, and block quotes. Then explore some of the different implementations of the language, including GitHub Flavored Markdown, MultiMarkdown, R Markdown, CommonMark, and Babelmark.
