On the 18th of May session, I (Thomas) showed how markdown is the answer to everything if you want to write down things.

Markdown is a really easy to use language. You can find details on it’s syntax on over here: Daring Fireball Dingus.

One of the major advantage though is that you can use it as a portable writing format and convert it into any kind of language using pandoc. Check out this PeerJ paper for more details.

Finally you can also use Markdown for your normal coding via knitr in R or Rstudio…
