Most lectures will be interactive with exercises that you will solve in real time. Homework will also be given at each session. 
 
Material: some lectures might require manipulating some given data. This data will be available in due time here so please have that link handy on the day. I will also upload the homework there.
One-on-one sessions: if you have some particular issue or something specific you would like to do with LaTeX, please let us know somehow and so we can organise some one-on-one time at the last session. Anytime is OK but if you can give us your question in advance we can prepare a better answer.
Attendance: it is not required to attend all the sessions, feel free to skip any irrelevant one. There will be an attendance sheet, purely for book-keeping.
