Workshop Description

LaTeX is a powerful typesetting program for creating all kinds of documents.  Its “what you see is not what you get”' structure makes it very different from programs like Word.  This code-based approach means users can quickly create standard documents from templates or have access to complete customization and scripting for more advanced projects.  Simply put, LaTeX is a tool that enables the creation of beautiful documents; from manuscripts to dissertations, resumes to research posters.

This workshop requires no prior knowledge of LaTeX nor any programming experience.  We'll walk through getting started using Overleaf, a browser-based LaTeX tool.  We’ll cover how to create documents such as reports and letters with features like equations, figures, and tables.   The workshop will also include discussion on how to use and hack advanced templates (e.g., the NCSU thesis template or the IEEE journal standard), as well as tips for successful collaborative editing using Overleaf.
