November 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Markdown is a lightweight markup language that can be used in any text editor, is easy to read, and allows you to quickly convert your text into a website or a presentation. This workshop will introduce the basic tools for writing your dissertation with Markdown, including formatting of titles, headings, subheadings, quotations, and references. It will also cover the automatization of things such as table of contents, bibliography, list of tables and images. We will also touch on some of the more advanced possibilities of markdown, including its integrations with Github for tracking changes (version control), automatic backup, and measuring progress.
