DHC Open Source Toolkit Workshop Series: Markdown, a Lightweight Markup Language for Formatted Text

The Center for Digital Humanities and Culture is pleased to announce the fifth of its ongoing workshops for the Open Source Toolkit. Students, staff, and faculty are invited to join us to learn about using the Web shorthand called Markdown to easily publish and share documents for the Web. The workshop takes place on Monday, April 7, from 12:15–1:15 p.m. in Stabley Library, room 201.

Workshop leader and undergraduate Annie Lin, assisted by Kenneth Sherwood, will provide a practical introduction to using Markdown that will leave participants fluent in this new, simple markup language and able to apply it to a variety of applications. This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity for hands-on experimentation and provide participants with the Open Source toolkit to produce their own websites and Markdown documents.

Additional information about the workshop series is available on the Center for Digital Humanities and Culture website. Questions also may be directed to the DHC by e-mail at
