LaTeX Beginners Training

Useful for first year students

Donald Knuth is a smart man with ideas. If smart people have ideas, they write books about it. But Donald was fed up with the available text processing software for writing books, so he wrote his own. This became LaTeX.

Nowadays, LaTeX is the de facto standard in scientific text processing. It has built-in support for all sorts of mathematical characters, it can be used for lots of things, like homework, presentations and resumes and it makes your life a lot easier. As a mathematician you will first use LaTeX in Q1 during the Linear Algebra 1 course, as a computer scientist, you will use it during Data Structures in Q3. Because LaTeX is an invaluable skill when you are studying Mathematics or Computer Science, TRAIN is offering a LaTeX-training! The training will be given by our very own Gijs de Man, we will provide some snacks and drinks while diving into the world of scientific test processing. The beginners training will take place on campus, Wednesday October 5th in the evening. There are around 70 places, so be on time. There will also be an advanced training one week later, more information about this will follow soon.
