Quick guide to getting up and running with LaTeX
Hate Word? Love code? There is a better way.
1. Get yourself a free Overleaf account. This allows you to edit files online and collaborate with others. If you need a desktop version, see Getting LaTeX: Linux users probably have an installation already, Mac users will want MacTeX, and Windows users will want MiKTeX.
4. Go play! In your Overleaf dashboard, select New Project and scroll down to select a template to start with. If you don’t have particular project you’re working on, you can try migrating your CV or resume into a TeX file— it will look nicer than it did in your word processor and you will be relieved to be able to add to it in the future without fiddling around with formatting.
