Ten years of work in Wiadomości Matematyczne

Posted on May 7, 2018 by Content AND Presentation Feed

I mentioned a few times on this very blog that I work for a certain journal, Wiadomości Matematyczne. Last year was my tenth anniversary of my job there, and I gave a talk on the joint Polish TeX Users Group and TUG conference to celebrate that. Well, a few weeks ago my TUG paper based on that talk went public. If you are interested in LaTeX and want to learn something about what it looks like to use it to typeset a journal, it may be a nice read. Enjoy!

Try out Overleaf v2

Posted on May 2, 2018 by Overleaf Feed

Since Overleaf joined forces with ShareLaTeX last year, our goal has been to create an online editor that outshines both ShareLaTeX and Overleaf. One that is simple to get started with for beginners, has powerful collaboration features for teams, and that seamlessly integrates with the other tools and publishers you work with. We’ve come a long way since we started last July, and there’s still a lot of work to do, but we’re excited to announce that as of this month you can try out the new Overleaf v2 editor!
