Markdown is one of the most popular markup languages on the web. Unfortunately, with no standard specification, every implementation works differently, producing varying results across different platforms. The CommonMark specification fixes this by providing an unambiguous syntax specification and a comprehensive suite of tests. In this session you'll learn about this standard and how to integrate the league/commonmark parser into their PHP applications. We'll also cover how to customize the library to implement new features like custom Markdown syntax or advanced renderers.

Colin gave an insightful presentation on CommonMark and covered lots of material that was new to me. It was great to see how to parse and customize markdown, and good resources were given. I really liked seeing code on the screen, which to me is more helpful than a dozen slides explaining it. Great presentation and great code examples.
