  • Please review my resume for entry level software developer roles. I have applied to 400+ positions yet not callbacks..
    A nitpick: the bottom right text "created with" looks a little unprofessional. If you want an online resume website (free), there's which I like. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Laptop for academic use : programming, office apps and LaTeX.
    I find myself using my browser most of the time, I don't load any heavy website either. It's mostly YouTube, Overleaf, Mathcha, Quora, LinkedIn, Codechef, HackerRank, etc. Other than that sometimes I use heavy editors like Visual studio, PyCharm, etc. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Technical documents and user manuals. How to?
    I loved LaTex (via for school assignments. Admittedly, I'm probably in the minority there. But it made formatting stuff so much easier. I'm reasonably proficient at LaTeX, and there were a few deadlines I can recall that I would absolutely have missed if I'd had to deal with all the formatting and citations manually. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Is buying an MS Office (non-subscription) a good investment for my future career?
    Not really. If you just need to make documents, any of the free office software will do (Libre Office, Open Office, Google Docs, etc). The best way to make IEEE formatted papers is through LaTeX with BibTeX (also said by another commenter). It makes referencing/citing a breeze. Submitting papers to journals would likely require the same to be in LaTeX format. During my undergrad, we were required to do the thesis... Source: about 1 year ago
  • How do i make cool looking equations?
    Use LaTeX to write these things in a paper. Setting up a TeX environment is hard, so look at The mhchem package is my goto for formatting nuclear chemistry. There is probably a package that will draw the nuclei if you want those in your paper too. Source: about 1 year ago
  • I typeset the newest We The Investors Comment letter in LaTeX so we can send in a professional-looking pdf instead of a word-file. GO COMMENT!
    I used to compile the document. Create a user and open up a blank document. Source: about 1 year ago

  • Anyone tried to use LaTex for their homework?
    I'm in mech e and use latex for all pretty much everything. Makes searching notes, hw, etc. a breeze and also much easier to copy into wolfram alpha without a dumb error if there's a tedious multiplication or something. Additionally, much nicer to read later when studying for exams. I'd recommend and to get the flow started! Source: over 1 year ago
  • A fairly comprehensive guide on how to apply to MSCS programs in the US - Part 3: Applications
    Use something like latex ( makes it super easy) to create a simple CV that highlights your education, research experience, and work experience. If you're not from a CS background, list out your coursework as well. If you don't have work/research experience, list out interesting projects. Your CV has a very natural link with your SoP, so you can use one as a guide to frame the talking point for the other! Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Request for articles, guides, books (available in pdf format online) etc. on the basics of writing mathematics papers.
    With all respect, if you've never heard of lemmas, then probably either you've not been studying your math in Englihs, or you might be out of your league a little in the mathematics you're trying to present. You should try reading and using LaTeX (the Website has free tutorials and makes it easy to setup). But also, maybe post it online before... Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Are there any "easy to publish" sites like Medium or Substack but that has LaTeX functionality?
    I only care about LaTeX and publicity: (share your LaTeX project link and call it a day; you can decide whether people can edit it or just view it). Source: almost 2 years ago
