Having been loudly singing the praises of Overleaf for years now, first as a PhD student and then as an ambassador and lecturer, I'm amazed that there are still a good proportion of LaTeX users who haven't heard of it. I was therefore eager to set up a booth at the Australian and NZ Industrial and Applied Mathematics conference, held in Australia's capital city, Canberra, from February 7-11 2016 to spread the word. This was especially the case since Overleaf had generously agreed to sponsor the Conference, specifically the production of the conference handbook which was compiled in Overleaf.

"I was looking for a collaborative tool for writing LaTeX scientific documents, journal papers and other texts.

My PhD co-advisor is a professor at Imperial College London and I am based in Barcelona, so exchanging latex files for paper reviews through email was not optimal.

Then, we found Overleaf through the website, and since then, we are using it to write different documents in a simple collaborative way, editing the same source file."
