Participants will be introduced to the reasons for considering a move from proprietary software like MS Word to text-based workflow, including preventing future obsolescence. They will get an introduction to the simple and popular markup language Markdown. They will learn to create word-processing documents with headers, links, images, tables and footnotes. Finally they will be introduced to pandoc, the document-conversion software that can take their Markdown documents and turn them into web pages, PDFs, presentations, and even Word documents. Along the way, the virtues of various related (open-source) software applications will be extolled. These include Zotero for bibliography and reveal.js for presentations.
