Description

What is this workshop?

Intro to the wonderful Document Preparation System known as LaTeX, taught using OverLeaf (formerly known as ShareLaTeX), which is an online LaTeX editor.

Why Use Latex?

Latex uses iterative typesetting algorithms to determine the optimal layout based on many typographical rules. This allows Latex to seperate a documents "Content" vs its "Formatting". At first glance this appears to be more complicated than a simple word document, but it is in fact much easier once you start to understand its functionality.

What to bring?

In order to maximize user experience please bring your own laptop, and please make a free OverLeaf account ahead of time.
