LaTeX: More Than Just Academic Papers and Theses

Update 2 July 2011: OK source code uploaded per request, see link below.

So my slides for the talk on LaTeX during MOSC2011 are done and available for download. (This version without animations etc. to minimise the file size. Updated and corrected 30 June 2011; Thanks to Stefan Kottwitz, Felipe and Per for pointing out some mistakes.)

LaTeX: More Than Just Academic Papers and Theses [slideshare id=8408252&w=425&h=355&fb=0&mw=0&mh=0&sc=no]

As mentioned before, it won’t be a tutorial, rather I plan to give teasers of what LaTeX is capable of beyond the usual journal or conference articles. I have undoubtedly left out many interesting use cases, so please don’t flog me if I haven’t included your favorite package or class! 😉 But do drop me a line and we’ll do a future post on it.

(Update: See this post about the Beamer theme used for the slides.)

Talk at MOSC2011

My proposed talk on LaTeX has just been accepted by the organisers of MOSC2011.

Now I need to actually write the slides!

Anyway, I plan to speak on “LaTeX: More Than Just Academic Papers and Theses”. It won’t be a tutorial, rather I plan to give teasers of what LaTeX is capable of beyond the usual journal or conference articles.

This will also be my first time attending an OSS conference. I do rather feel queasy at the thought of being intimidated by crusty h4x0rs. :-)

UPDATE: The organisers have posted my speaker’s profile.
