Deckset on show

I’m a big fan of markdown as a way of writing. I generate most of my content in Markdown using Byword for Mac1 and Byword for iOS, supported by tools like Editorial, MultiMarkdown Composer, nvAlt and Marked.

These tools allow me to put together blog posts, as well as write articles, reports, training programs and even books. The cool thing is that with Markdown I can write once and then reuse the same content easily in multiple formats.

Now I can use Markdown to create brilliant presentations using a new Mac app called Deckset (available in the Mac App Store). The following Slideshare presentation—created in Deckset and embedded here2—is my review of Deckset.

The short version—Deckset for Mac is great. Go get it.
