Discussion on: An amazing note-taking system with Markdown and Git, Part 2

I will read both parts later.
Until last year I tried to take notes on Microsoft OneNote.
In many cases this is useful, but as I was trained dev, I started to need code snippets. While I could do it in OneNote for there is a code styling, there are still problems :

  • No syntax coloration. It is always grayscale. Neither very attractive nor simple to read.
  • Not very practical.

I was already using Github for 6 months before the idea of markdown struck me.
Why didn't I think about it earlier?

Since then, any new course I'd follow, I write notes in there in markdown.

I'll read both parts later and may update this comment or write a new one after. Hopefully I may learn a thing or two I did not integrate yet.
