My first exposure to LaTeX came from a course on formal language
theory; lots of Greek letters, and lots of mathematical notation. Of
course, LaTeX does a very good job with this kind of material. Once I
discovered how easy it was to typeset math with LaTeX, I was
completely hooked.
If my memory serves me correctly, the first things I wanted to learn
about LaTeX were
- how to typeset math
- how to create basic document structures (headings, lists, and
such).
- how to incorporate graphics (graphicx)
- how to change margins (geometry), and how to get block-structured
paragraphs (parskip).
Depending on your audience, these may be appropriate topics for an
introductory talk.
