Latex is markup language used to typeset a document. Learning it , was purely an adventure. My introduction to it was more or less of learning by doing. The need to create a new Mathematics course and lectures online for Kenyan based Curriculum was enough reason why I had to learn latex . I needed to upload lectures in latex format, once I was granted administrative rights. After coming up with a number of Formula and Variation problems, the next task was to write some of them using latex, a language I haven’t used before. The first thing I did was to install the app. The installation steps were very simple just like any other app. I then explored the app, trying to understand how it works. Since I didn't know many things, I didn't change any default settings. I began by writing simple document which on running display a number of errors I did not understand. I tried changing commands and playing with a number of things here and there. Step by step, I learn to create documents, first and simple. I encountered many latex errors and dealt with them to get the document compile. Large chunk of my latex knowledge has been acquired while tracking down and eliminating warnings. Challenges kept me motivated. One can really do some amazing work if he digs enough into Latex.
