If you publish content on the web, get ready, a shift started a while back, but now gaining momentum. I first encountered Markdown a few years ago and had a fancy for it, but never took the time to learn it. I didn’t really have a use for it. Now that I’ve had to use it on StackOverflow, GitHub, and other great sites, I’m convinced it’s time to learn it.
There is another impetus pushing me, Markdown may become a standard. So from now, I’m going to be upping the ante and blogging in Markdown.
Did this help you out? It took me a few days to piece together all this information together, I hope this saves you some time (who knows, maybe the future me will be thankful I wrote this down). Let me know your thoughts. firstname.lastname@example.org
