Phil Waclawski: Krita Basics - Tools, Layers, Coloring etc

Description:
Krita is a powerful painting program, designed for graphic designers and general artists. I will introduce the basic features it provides, along with some special filters, including G'mic. I will however not be able to demonstrate any artistic skills :)

der.hans: AsciiDoc - Plainish text for fancy output

Description:
AsciiDoc is a great text tool for documentation from simple notes to books. A text editor is all it takes. Since it's all text, AsciiDoc lends itself to revision control and revision control WebUI systems like GitLab and GitHub support it.
