Overleaf at Australian and NZ Industrial and Applied Maths (ANZIAM) 2016

Posted on July 21, 2016 by Overleaf Feed

Having been loudly singing the praises of Overleaf for years now, first as a PhD student and then as an ambassador and lecturer, I'm amazed that there are still a good proportion of LaTeX users who haven't heard of it. I was therefore eager to set up a booth at the Australian and NZ Industrial and Applied Mathematics conference, held in Australia's capital city, Canberra, from February 7-11 2016 to spread the word. This was especially the case since Overleaf had generously agreed to sponsor the Conference, specifically the production of the conference handbook which was compiled in Overleaf.

A quick visual guide to creating table cells with diagonal lines in LaTeX

Posted on July 21, 2016 by Overleaf Feed

There are many packages in LaTeX that help with table creation – booktabs is a popular example – and there are also a growing number of automatic table generators now available online (such as this one) which are a great way to create the LaTeX code for a table without having to type it out manually. But what if you want to add some additional styling or formatting to certain cells within your tables?

You've created three million projects and counting...

Posted on July 21, 2016 by Overleaf Feed

Last week we hit an amazing milestone -- the three millionth project was created on Overleaf! When John and I kicked this all off (as writeLaTeX) just over two and half years ago, we never expected it to grow this fast. Looking at this early screenshot compared to the current editor, it's amazing how little has changed on the surface: But things have certainly had to scale up on the backend! To celebrate hitting the three million projects mark, and to help give a sense of this scale, we've put together a few other stats about Overleaf we hope you'll find interesting (and maybe a little surprising too!).

Full steam ahead! Ongoing collaboration between Stanford and Overleaf in 2016

Posted on July 21, 2016 by Overleaf Feed

I am happy to write about our successful ongoing collaboration with Stanford University Libraries! Earlier this year, in February, I attended Stanford’s Gear Up for research day. It was fun speaking with students, researchers, faculty and staff interested in increasing productivity and quality related to collaborative scientific authoring. The feedback was excellent – students and faculty were genuinely happy that Stanford was providing free Overleaf Pro accounts to all students and faculty. Collaboration is on the rise, and having an innovative collaborative authoring tool received high praise! You can view my lightning talk slides by clicking here.
