We are excited to announce that our new presentation platform that we have been working on at appendTo has launched into public beta. Blazon is a product designed specifically for technical presenters and trainers with this goal: to provide the best way to quickly and easily create beautiful technical presentations.
Current features available in the beta include our markdown-based slide editor, code formatting and management tools, shared code examples between slides, offline support via a downloadable archive of the presentations, and more.
You can register today for free and start building presentations immediately!
Our products team has an exciting vision for the product and we will be releasing new features and improving the platform over the next weeks and months. Some exciting upcoming features include live code demos, presenter view with speaker notes, additional theme choices, and per slide customization to the themes.
Check out some presentations already being built and delivered with Blazon:
