Code:

Inline `code` has `back-ticks around` it.

Fenced code block:

Note:
You can add an optional language identifier to enable syntax highlighting in your fenced code block.

For example, to syntax highlight Ruby code:

'''ruby
require 'redcarpet'
markdown = Redcarpet.new("Hello World!")
puts markdown.to_html
'''

In case you like to use code blocks only to highlight something or to have nested list items please use:

'''text

Lorem ipsum...

'''
