☑ To work and modify LaTeX documents, to be able to participate in joint projects with other researchers

Description

Hi, I am Paulo, a researcher with over 15 years of experience creating documents with LaTeX, and over 8 years teaching college students.

This course will prepare you to write a complete article in LaTeX. You will learn how to start your document, how to format it, how to include graphics and tables, a bibliography, and citations, and of course, work with LaTeX's famous and beautiful mathematical notation.

Even though LaTeX is used by - and associated with - academics and professionals of the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, the quality of the result and the control over the final document makes it extremely useful for anyone trying to produce professional-looking documents.

I encourage you to take this journey and take your articles, documents, thesis, essays to the next level!

This course is presented in a constructive way, that is, I do not use slides or theory to teach this. We will be able to build our article step by step, having the chance to experiment and see the effects the different options create on the final document. Also, the units are designed to be easily reachable in case in the future you need to use the course as a reference when creating your own projects and find exactly the content you need to review. Finally, I will keep uploading material as you request it or I find myself using code that has not been included in the course (you will see these lectures staring with Extra Material).

**I invite to check the classes available with free preview to get an idea of this course.**
