Getting Started - Installing LaTeX

Before you start using LaTeX, you have to make it available on your computer.

Download and Install LaTeX

Download and Install MiKTeX

Download and Install Perl

In this guide, I use Visual Studio Code as a text editor. Then, you have to open Visual Studio Code -> open Extensions (Ctrl + Shift + X) -> search LaTeX Workshop -> install LaTeX Workshop


Then, you have to follow the LaTeX syntax and create a LaTeX file (name.tex).

To run LaTeX file, open this file -> open LaTeX Workshop (Ctrl+Alt+X) -> Build LaTeX project .


Then you will get several files including(.aux, .fls, .log, .out, .pdf, …)


You can run my LaTeX Resume template in example folder and create your personal resume.
