Last week a call for speakers came out with 3 slots available.
So I thought I might as well give it a shot, I have attended several meetups, perhaps it would be time to give something back. I have previously given talks at local users groups, workshops and conferences home and abroad, but most of them have been centered around Perl. Well I actually gave a talk at CopenhagenJS back in April 2012.
I have however been an open source developer/contributor for a very long time and perhaps I could offer something in this regard. So I though about what I have been working with lately and I decided for Markdownlint.
I promised the organizers to provide a bullet list for my talk, so they could decide if it would be of interest, so here goes my bullet list.
- Markdown - what is Markdown?
- Markdownlint - what is a linter? comparison to ESLint?
- A brief and very inaccurate history of Markdownlint - the Ruby and the Node implementation
- What does Markdownlint provide? - uniformity and correctness
- Linting rules and the exceptions to the rules
- Tool-chain and editor integration - VSCode and Sublime Text
- Bonus material integration with CI/CD - Travis CI example
This is just a draft, when the slides are shaping up, I might add new parts or skip some of the suggestions, most likely that additions will be made.
I am using Markdownlint quite extensively for open source projects, which is good, because then it will be easy to show real-life examples and for me personally it is a good opportunity to structure my notes, practices and use of tools.
I will publish the slides for those of you who are interested and I might supplement the slides with a write-up of my presentation, I find it a good practise to do this if you have time, since it often can evaluate the information flow and presentation structure.
Wish me luck in getting the presentation accepted.
