What I did last weekend: Cover letter presentation using the reveal.js Web presentation framework

So, I decided to create a cover letter for my job hunting endeavours. I didn't want to overtax recruiters with a long document (god knows they barely read anything applicants send),and thus I decided to build it as a Web presentation that's easy to link and browse from any device.

After looking up some decent presentation frameworks built on Javascript I chose reveal.js and got to work on it. The syntax is clean, and the documentation and examples are superb. It also supports markdown and code snippets with syntax highlighting.

I've tested it in the most common browsers and devices, and so far, so good. With a little query it even helps you generate a printing version in PDF format that I easily uploaded to Slideshare.

So, if you need an easy-to-use presentation framework that's responsive, fully featured and provides PDF exporting facilities, I suggest you give reveal.js a shot. You'll be up and running in no time.

You can find my cover letter here:

And, the PDF version is here:
