7:30 PM: Markdown my friend, we have to talk - Martin Walker

Most people have discovered that WYSIWYG editors are not the best idea when you're dealing with content at scale. Their end format is neither reusable nor portable to other platforms. That said – should we "markdown all the things", or not?

Let's have a look at all the things Markdown is great at, evaluate rough edges and have a look at alternatives like Contentful's Rich Text Editor.

Martin is a community manager and web developer at Contentful

8:00 PM: Have more drinks and food
