We have moved from PowerPoint to Beamer (LaTex) for technical presentations.

A working example is more useful than reams of documentation. Here are the high level steps for getting started with a Beamer example.

Install MiKTeX from https://miktex.org

  • We used the Basic Installer 64-bit.
  • latex --help becomes available from the command line.

Clone and build a Beamer example.

git clone [email protected]:josephwright/beamer.git
cd beamer\examples\a-conference-talk
pdflatex .\beamerexample-conference-talk.tex

Open .\beamerexample-conference-talk.pdf

Now you're started. The rest is up to you. :-)
