Markdown for Technical Writing
November 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Note the corrected date: Nov 12. We will discuss using Markdown (a light-weight markup language with plain-text formatting syntax) for technical writing, including the support of LaTeX-style mathematics typesetting and bibliography. The approach can be applied to writing dissertation, research manuscripts, presentation slides, and web pages from the same set of source files. A number of documentation-building tools around the Markdown format will be introduced. We will also discuss using GitHub and Travis CI for version control and automatic building of documents and web pages. All of the open-source tools introduced (e.g. pandoc) can be installed on the user’s own computers or a remote cluster account, without superuser privilege.
Workshop will be conducted in Zoom in PST time.
If you have any further questions regarding the workshop, please contact instructor Shao-Ching Huang.
