Jason White, Writing and Typesetting Documents in Linux, Or: The Tools
which I Used to Write my Thesis

Abstract

Linux has long offered a compelling environment in which to write
documents, ranging from the small scale (a CV, for instance), to the large
scale (a book or thesis).

In this introductory talk I describe the writing and typesetting tools
which I use regularly. These include Emacs (with AUCTeX mode), LaTeX for
document markup and typesetting, BibLaTeX for managing citations, and Git
for revision control.

Bio

Jason is an accessibility specialist, a long-term Linux enthusiast, a
supporter of justice and human rights, a researcher in philosophy, a law
school graduate and, as of August last year, a Ph.D. graduate. His thesis
explores fundamental issues arising from Robert Brandom's inferentialist
semantics. It therefore contributes to a foundational field of research
into theories of meaning which has value not just in its own right, but
implications for other areas of inquiry as well.
