So I’ve finally published my first youtube video - wohoo. I hadn’t really seen any Atom videos which covered very many packages and their use cases, so I decided to make one. What are your thoughts on Atom?

Fun fact: All of my blog posts have been written in Atom with the markdown preview package.
