LaTeX with Overleaf | GPDI542


This workshop introduces the basic mechanisms of the typesetting programming language LaTeX as implemented in the web browser instance Overleaf. After demonstrating the concept of a compiled pdf from typesetting instructions, participants will be offered examples for how to include hyperlinks, images, mathematical equations, tables, code snippets with highlighting, and how to program diagrams. To conclude, the workshop will show how LaTeX integrates with any reference manager which can export references to BibTeX or BibLaTeX formats.
