Markdown

I’ve been writing a lot recently, such as this blog, in markdown. I’ve referenced cheatsheets etc, but I’m always a sucker for quick, braindump, crash course type of videos to follow along. I love inserting a quick learning or tutorial between tasks.

Crash Course

This time it is Markdown Crash Course Video by @traversymedia approximately 20 minutes, gives the fundamentals of markdown, and a couple from github markdown syntax.

He also uses a Code extension called Auto-Open Markdown Preview, that shows a preview in another pane of a markdown file when opened. This alone will save me a step in my workflow. Note it doesn’t show images or the github syntax in preview.
