yeah they are quite impressive and exciting to see, aren't they?

a reminder to everyone, to please commit the source code
(latex, images in absolute maximum 1280x800 resolution
preferably 800x600) of your talk to the wiki, and to
then upload a PDF version to pretalx.

you install "texstudio", and press "F5" or i think "F6"
and it compiles *automatically* to a PDF for you, which
is then displayed on the RHS and has integrated navigation,
informs you of errors, and so on.

there are *over a dozen* examples so this is very very easy.

* FOSDEM 2021 - just plain beamer


* IIT Rourkee 2021 - includes an image (PNG)


create yourself a subdirectory under the fosdem2024 directory
to keep it "clean".


btw iam serious about the PDF resolution: *absolute maximum*
resolution is 1280x800, preferably 800x600. the content
must be clearly visible from the *back of the room*
(over 10 metres) on what is only a relatively small
(2 metre) projector.

1920 or even 1440 is *not* going to be readable.


geometry: without it life is pointless
the fibonacci series: easy as 1 1 2 3
