If you’re anything like me, you go to Brown University and really like Till Tantau’s Beamer LaTeX package for making slides. Unfortunately, Beamer’s theming can be a bit obstinate, and figuring out how to give your slides a Brown flavor (yum!) can be tedious.

Luckily for you, I just spent some time and put together a template that you can use for exactly that purpose. This is what it looks like:


I’ve also attached a sample PDF to this story.


You can download a tarball of the most recent version or browse the source code. If you like, you can also directly get a git checkout:

git clone http://git.tiker.net/trees/brown-beamer.git


To use this template, obtain the source tree, edit slides.tex, then change to the out directory and type ./make.sh. (If you’re on Windows, maybe you can send me a batch file that does the same thing.)
