Silent Disco: Getting Started with Markdown

Our 'Silent Discos' are based on tutorials from the Programming Historian website.

Participants will meet for a brief introduction to the subject, and then you'll work on your skills at your own pace. The facilitator will be available in Teams Chat to reply to any questions that arise during the workshop and help troubleshoot or explain issues.

In this lesson, you will be introduced to Markdown, a popular plain text-based syntax for formatting documents both offline and online. You will find out why it is used, how to format Markdown files, and how to preview Markdown-formatted documents on the web. During this lesson we will be using an online tool, accessed via the web browser called StackEdit. 

Those who have booked their place will receive an email with full details and a link to take part in advance of the live session.
