7:30 PM: Markdown, my friend - we have to talk - Stefan Judis (Contentful)

Most people have discovered that WYSIWYG editors are not the best idea when you're dealing with content at scale. Their end format is neither reusable nor portable to other platforms. That said – should we "markdown all the things", or not?

Let's have a look at all the things Markdown is great at, evaluate rough edges and have a look at alternatives.

Stefan is a Frontend Dev and Developer Evangelist at Contentful.
