Training: Introduction to Markdown

Markdown is a minimal markup language that allows you to create documents using any plain text editor. It can be easily converted to formats like HTML, PDF, or Word. Markdown is often used to format readme on Github repositories, write blog posts, and even disseminate research findings.

This 2-hour workshop will show you how to write common markdown syntax to create headlines, lists, tables, links, images, and block quotes.

We will also explore some of the popular implementations of the language, including GitHub Flavoured Markdown and R Markdown.
