LaTeX: Workshop Materials

Workshop Modules

The Point of the Workshop Series

This workshop series was created to enable attendees to create a LaTeX article from start to finish. LaTeX is an extremely powerful typesetting system with superior equation support; however in many ways, there is more of a learning curve with LaTeX than with word processing software like Microsoft Word.

Expert coding skills are not required. However, the better that you are at writing code, then the faster you will understand LaTeX. Anyone can learn. You just need practice and experience.

There are great resources available for beginners and a glossary to help with the new terminology.
