DSD: LaTeX: Demo of Overleaf
Course Description:

This is a demonstration of the online LaTeX development system Overleaf.

Overleaf is a complete LaTeX system, including an editor, LaTeX engine and PDF previewer. Users can upload images for inclusion in files, add new LaTeX class and package files to their projects, and can share files for collaboration, including track changes and commentary. Overleaf also provides full version history of documents.

We will look at logging on to an Overleaf account from UCL, creating some simple documents, loading styles and packages, downloading and uploading files and using the Overleaf LaTeX tutorial.

Please ensure you complete any necessary pre-learning (found in our Moodle course) beforehand.
