Last week, I gave a presentation on learning LaTeX to interested UD students as an activity of our ACM Student Chapter. The presentation aimed to cover everything necessary to write a paper or lab report in LaTeX, while also touching on aspects useful for math homework. Fittingly, I created a slideshow using LaTeX (specifically, the Beamer package) to streamline my presentation. Here is that slideshow, in PDF form. For best results, view it in full-screen single-page mode, or “presentation mode,” if your PDF viewer supports it.
As an ACM student chapter, we have access to an impressive ArrayList of speakers. See this site: http://dsp.acm.org/ and see if there are any speakers / presentations that we would be particularly interested in. Bring it up at the next computer club meeting, and we can see about making arrangements. Note that ACM will help pay for travel costs.
