    Also, we use markdown on this forum. You can read a full guide on how to write markdown if you're not familiar here: markdown guide.

    In the meantime, here are a few common commands you should know!


    # at the start of a line denotes a heading. ## denotes a sub-heading, ### a sub-sub-heading and so on.

    Code Blocks

    You can write inline code pieces by enclosing a single word, or sentence in backticks x.


    Code blocks are book-ended by triple backticks. And you can specify the language in the same line as the first set of backticks

        import numpy as np
        z = np.zeros((10))

    Bullet points

    Start lines with an * to create an itemized list. You can also indent bullets to create sub-items

    * This will be a bullet point
    * So will this
    * and this
        * This is a sub-point
        * another sub point
    * *and this*

    this becomes

    • This will be a bullet point
    • So will this
    • and this

      • This is a sub-point
      • another sub point
    • and this
