It is true! I am continuing with my weekly blog posts about my Machine Learning project. For the competition I have to write documentation 30 standard pages long. And this week it started!

Started Writing SOC


The problem was that I spend at least three hours thinking about styling instead of writing something meaningful. This happened to me almost always when I am writing something important. And then I find out about LaTeX and hopefully this won’t happen anymore.

LaTeX is a typesetting system designed for technical and scientific documents. You can easily convert it into PDF and it produces elegant, clean and functional design (the example below). This style is some kind of standard and you don’t have to worry about styling anymore. The only flaw is that you have to learn a new set of commands in order to use it effectively. On one side, you can really control your documents by these commands, but you can easily get lost in them.

After setting everything up and starting writing documentation for my project, I find out about official template for the competition. So, I have to go back to the MS Word. Even though I didn’t use LaTeX for this project, I still think it is worth learning it.

BTW, I will soon release my code for ML project publicly on GitHub.
