Impressions of LaTeX

Lim Lian Tze, Ph.D. candidate at the MMU Malaysia and regular poster on the Malaysian LaTeX Blog, has published a presentation about LaTeX. It’s an excellent survey of LaTeX’s capabilities.

Starting with some slides regarding why, for what and how to use LaTeX and where to get software and support, it focuses on presenting a lot of examples. Code snippets are shown together with final output. The presentation begins with standard documents and demonstrates that you can use LaTeX for writing theses, presentations, posters, leaflets, PDF forms, flash cards, and exam questions. It shows the application of LaTeX in mathematics, chemistry, linguistics, life sciences, business, computer science and electronics.

The slides are useful for bringing LaTeX to a large audience. That’s why Lim Lian Tze has written it, she will speak about LaTeX at the Malaysia Open Source Conference 2011.

Have a look at her blog post for more information and direct PDF download:

    @anonymous, I’m sorry I didn’t realise you needed an account (SlideShare/FB) to download the files. If you go back to my blog post (link given by Stefan), I have provided a link to directly download the PDF.

    Hope that helps and thanks for dropping by!

  6. Hi Jeff,

    Lian Tze used the Wuerzburg beamer theme, she wrote about that in another blog post.
