Introduction to LaTeX

The course is structured in three parts: the first part consists in learning what LaTeX is and an introduction to the Overleaf platform, as well as understanding why it represents a valuable tool for composing scientific documents. The second part is more practical and focuses on using LaTeX on Overleaf. Finally, we will learn how to export our first document.

Alberto Movia

I use LaTeX for writing my papers on Philosophy, and I genuinely believe it represents one of the best tools available to students and researchers in the academic world. A lot of people tend to prefer Microsoft Word, mainly because it is perceived to be more "user-friendly", but LaTeX offers the better and more powerful solution in the long run.

Alberto Movia is currently a student in the USI Master in Philosophy.
