Séances LaTeX

Pour les grands et les petits

What's new ?

The new package polytechnique-beamer just came out. It's in beta version and will allow you to create slides.

Here is a preview of things that can be done with polytechnique-beamer, using different compiling modes and fonts :
- with pdflatex
- with xelatex
- with lualatex and other fonts

What ?

Opened to everybody, these sessions will be dedicated to presenting what can be done with LaTeX and especially with the two packages provided by TypographiX.

Come and make your first steps with LaTeX or discover what these packages could bring to your productions.

What to do before coming ?

Before coming to these sessions, you need to install LaTeX and the two packages provided by TypographiX.

You can get help from the beamer package's wiki to fully install LaTeX and learn how to install an external package, which will allow you to install the two packages made available in the resources section.

If you really stay stuck you can get help from the Binet Réseau in amphitheatre Sauvy on Tuesday 10th from 6.30pm to 8pm

If you are familiar with git and github.com, you should consider cloning the two package repositories instead of downloading the two archives, allowing you to easily keep updated.

Where and when ?

The sessions will take place in amphitheatre "Lagarrigue" on some tuesdays and thursdays.

You need to use this simple form to declare yourself and choose a time.

Contribute !

The packages are constantly evolving, depending on new ideas, bugs, etc. We are open to suggestions.

If you ever notice a bug or have an idea/a particular need, you can in the following order :
- File an issue or a pull request on the corresponding github repository
- Send a detailed e-mail to clement.durand+latex@polytechnique.edu

In any case, try and provide detailed information about the problem or idea, preferably giving a minimal example.

Comme diraient nos amis anglophones, RTFM. Plus simplement, nous vous invitons à lire la documentation du package dans le fichier polytechnique.pdf

The polytechnique-beamer package has its (english) wiki on github.

Documentation sur LaTeX et très très complète !

En général, Google est votre ami pour toutes les questions que vous pourriez vous poser sur LaTeX. Si au début vous vous sentez perdu, voici une liste de documentations de références plutôt bien faites.

Documentation générale

Le wikilivre LaTeX est la documentation utilisée en général pour structurer les séances LaTeX.
Le LaTeX howto est aussi très complet.
The (not so) short introduction to LaTeX2e.

Choisir entre ces documentations est surtout une question de préférences personnelles.

Documentation plus spécifique

The short math guide for LaTeX (AMS).
The comprehensive LaTeX symbol list
