Why this course rocks

Markdown is a lightweight markup language for creating formatted text using a plain-text editor.

It is used for shorthand HTML for several types of applications including README files, blogs, forums, documentation, messaging and more!

Knowledge of Markdown is a vital skill for any developer, but the good news is that it is relatively easy to learn, especially when you’re studying with Scrimba’s interactive platform.

In this short but sweet course, you’ll learn the key features of Markdown which will help you to get started in your coding career. Throughout 24 interactive screencasts, you’ll learn how to create headings, paragraphs, text styling, lists, blockquotes, horizontal rules, code blocks, links, emails, tables and more!

Best of all, you’ll learn by doing by creating your own blog on the popular tech blogging site dev.to. Having an online presence is a fantastic way to take your coding career to the next level and document your progress, so why not get started today?

Good luck and happy coding!
