Been training a guy on basic linux administration and Devops stuff. My role is to write a parser for implementing the specifications of CommonMark 0.25 in Erlang/OTP by using native libraries.
Markdown is a plain text format for writing structured documents, based on conventions used for indicating formatting in email and usenet posts. It was developed in 2004 by John Gruber, who wrote the first Markdown-to-HTML converter in perl, and it soon became widely used in websites. By 2014 there were dozens of implementations in many languages.
CommonMark 0.25 is the set of generalized specifications of Markdown Language.
