• What we'll do
Markdown Basics for Documentation Writers

The power of Markdown is its ability to let technical and non-technical authors alike write valid HTML in a way that doesn't feel like writing code. In this talk you'll learn what Markdown is, how to use it, and why it has become so popular in the documentation community. Open topics for discussion are: tips and tricks for using it, editing software, "flavors" of Markdown, GitHub workflows, and its limitations.

About the Speaker:

Leon Barnard is a Writer and Designer at Balsamiq, where he writes documentation, blog posts, and tutorials. He also manages their Hugo-powered static documentation and support sites.
