Introduction to LaTeX and friends
Submitted by Sasi Kumar (@vsasi) on Monday, 21 December 2015
Technical level: Beginner
Learn the basics of LaTeX - how to create a LaTeX document and compile it to get a well laid-out pdf; What are environments and how to handle them; How to do basic debugging of LaTeX documents; etc.
The session will start with a description of what is LaTeX, including a brief history of the software. After this part, it would be best to do the sessions in a lab where the participants can get handson experience. I will be dealing basically with the software as installed in a GNU/Linux system.
Computers with GNU/Linux and TeXLive installed, along with a text editor like gedit or kate, and a pdf viewer like evince or okular.
I have been doing LaTeX workshops for more than 5 years and have taken such classes in several universities and colleges, including NITC.
