I'm trying to make a table of contents for a beamer presentation, and I want to have the outline show up for every section except the first. Right now I'm using:

\AtBeginSection[] {
\begin{frame}[t]
\frametitle{Overview}
\end{frame}
}


Normally I can do this using \section*, but that makes it not show up in the table of contents at all. Is there a way to have it do the table of contents after every section, but skip the first one and still have the first section in the table of contents?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Use a conditional based on the section counter to decide whether to include the table of contents frame. Here, I use the \ifnumcomp macro from etoolbox

\usepackage{etoolbox}

\AtBeginSection[] {
\ifnumcomp{\value{section}}{=}{1}{}
{
\begin{frame}[t]
\frametitle{Overview}
