The topic for tomorrow's TeX Hour is bibliographies for beginners. We're
pleased to welcome Patrick Daly, author of the widely used natbib package.
He'll give us the history of natbib, and answer questions. The focus will
be on the Beginner experience.
The meeting is Thursday 29 April, 6:30 to 7:30pm UK time. The time now in
the UK is at https://www.google.com/search?q=uk+time. The zoom link for the
The TeX Hour has a monthly cycle for its topics.
First Thursday: Beginners
Second Thursday: Accessibility
Third Thursday: Conversion (eg LaTeX to PDF, LaTeX to HTML, markdown to
Fourth Thursday: Durable Documents (same outputs give same input across

Fifth Thursday: Experiments and Exploration.
We hope later in the month to have a more technical reference management
TeX Hour, either as Conversion or Durable Documents.
Last week's TeX Hour was Experiments and Exploration. As an experiment I
didn't record anything, and then afterwards myself, Arthur Ogawa and
Phillip Helbig stayed on for an extra 4 hours! So it was an after-hours
party of sorts. During that time Arthur and I had some conversations, which
we recorded. Mostly, they give a long view of the history of TeX.
Here's the links.
