Introduction to LaTeX
LaTeX is the gold standard for document typesetting in academia. In
this 2 hour single-session IAP event we'll see how easy it is to make
professional-looking papers and resumes, get you typesetting math like
a pro, delve into macros, and finish with Beamer, the popular
open-source LaTeX analog to Powerpoint.
When and Where: Mon Jan 26, 5:00-7:00pm, 1-115

For Macs, I recommend the TeX previewer TexShop.
For Windows, the internet recommends MikTeX.
