Markdown is a light-weight markup language (get it? 😉) that lets you write up something in plain text with some very simple rules, and then transform it to formatted outputs, e.g. HTML. It’s very popular among software developers and programmers, exactly because of its simplicity (and might I add, perfect for note-taking too!).

On Wednesday, 16 November, we upgraded our LaTeX compile servers to the version of TeX Live 2016 that ships with Ubuntu 16.10 "Yakkety Yak". Here's what you need to look out for in terms of breaking changes and new features in your projects on Overleaf.
Thanks to Ashlea Higgs for giving a big shout-out to Overleaf at the ORCID outreach meeting at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Washington DC last week!
#FuturePub 8 – New Developments in Scientific Collaboration Tech – Full line up of speakers confirmed
After a great turnout at our last #FuturePub in May, and given that the London ALPSP conference is coming up soon, we're teaming up with Scholarly Social for a pre-ALPSP event on September 13th!
The evenings are designed to be fun and informal - we aim to give opportunities to those working on new ideas and innovations a chance to present and get feedback on their ideas. And did I mention the free pizza?
FuturePub is being held at The Stables (near Kings Cross). Doors open at 6:00pm and the talks will kick off at 7pm. Space at the venue is limited, so please register for your free tickets now to reserve your place!
