Writing Markdown in any web tool like Ghost, GitHub, your own site
Learning the 'A-Z' of Markdown, from paragraphs to tables and images.
You should be able to use a PC or Mac.
Knowledge on HTML would be of benefit, but not a prerequisite.
Learn the ins and outs of the Markdown writing format - a syntax that helps you produce HTML ready content in an easier and more efficient manner. This course will introduce you to the world of Markdown and its background. It will then dive into the conventions of the writing format itself, including the various ways of publishing markdown content. All of this can be done with just a simple text editor. We'll be running through the A-Z of Markdown, showing you how to create headers, images, links and more. In this course, I also use the Ghost CMS tool to illustrate how Markdown works in a real-world environment. Ghost is a CMS that uses Markdown to create posts. You can follow along using Ghost or any other Markdown-to-HTML conversion tool of your choice such as Dillinger. You can also use the Atom text editor, which has a built-in Markdown live viewer.
