Exercise Wednesday

In the Using Markdown video, we learned:

  • Generally how the World Wide Web works.
  • What Markdown is used for.
  • How to create headers, use bold and italics, and make lists in Markdown.

Now it's time to practice on your own!

  • Go here to StackEdit. Delete all of the text from box on the left and follow along with the video to recreate the cookie recipe page in Markdown. Your results should be visible on the right. DO NOT copy and paste from the text of the lesson. The best way to learn this is to do it yourself!
  • Create a new project folder on your desktop and write a blog post about your day/your favorite food/favorite vacation destination, etc. Save the file with .md as the extension on it and make sure to track the file with git. Go to Daring Fireball and choose a couple formatting elements that we didn't teach you in the lesson and use them in your blog post. You can preview you Markdown file in atom using ctrl-shift-m. Remember to make commits and push your files up to GitHub!
