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.

Mark Wheelhouse, 2nd Year Coordinator at ICL’s Department of Computing came up with a great idea for helping his students: Rubber Duck Debugging.

Needless to say that once we heard about this we were keen to get involved, and everyone was delighted with the rather cute result.
