Ah, $$\LaTeX$$. I pronounce it as “lay-tech” or “lah-tech”, never “lay-tex”. Every math girl’s dream.

## Setup#

• MiKTeX for building TeX
• [[VSCode]] as text editor
• I have Strawberry Perl and I think it’s related to LaTeX but I honestly Don’t Remember why
• ah ok I think based on this article, Using Latexmk, you need Perl to run latexmk, a Perl script, “If you use cross-references, you often have to run LaTeX more than once, if you use BibTeX for your bibliography or if you want to have a glossary you even need to run external programs in-between.”
• I have used bibtex so this makes sense
• [[GitHub]] for any big boy projects or things I want to share

## Skills ??#

• BiBTeX
• include and large projects
• math typesetting
