  • @cmhughes: I don't think my question is duplicate of [tex.stackexchange.com/q/102791/4821](Simple Beamer Template for Total Beginners). That question is about beamer template, however, my question is about An Introduction to LaTeX in beamer style in TeX format so that I don't have to type An Introduction to LaTeX in beamer.

  • So, you are looking for a handbook/manual to LaTeX that is already written with the beamer class, so you don't have to write it but can still modify it? Then your question would not be a duplicate, but I am not sure it belongs here either (it is not a TeX question, it is a "make-my-life-easier" one). Why can't you just take an existing presentation and state it as not being your own?

  1. Nicola Talbot has written some material for an introductory LaTeX course; the material can be found in An Introduction to LaTeX. There, you can find the PDF documents: the handout, the slides (made using beamer) and some additional notes. The source files are also available.

  2. Another resource can be found in the UK-TUG. Nicola Talbot and Joseph Wright periodically offer a LaTeX course. In this UK_TUG page, You'll find links to the material for the course. PDFs are available as well as the source code for the slides (produced using beamer).

  • Thanks a lot @GonaloMedina for your help. Much appreciated.

The documentation is a good starting point and for beamer it is self explanatory as well. If you are using Linux open up the terminal else in Windows open the Command Prompt and type texdoc beamer. The documentation file will be displayed. Its a good starting point. To start off:
Beamer class is used to generate slides for presentation purposes. There is another class named slides but, beamer has more features and widely used. A sample document will look like this:

\title{Introduction to Beamer}
\author{Subham Soni S.}
\begin{frame}{Table of Contents}
\begin{frame}{This is my first slide} %The second argument is title of the frame
\section{First slide} %This is used to make the title appear in the Table of Contents - Note:- Not Necessary that the frame title and Section title should be same.
Hello Everyone. You are viewing the \emph{first} slide.
\begin{frame}{This is my second slide}
\section{Second slide}
Hello Everyone. You are viewing the \emph{second} slide.

  • @GonzaloMedina I think It would have been better if there had been an MWE. Commented Mar 6, 2014 at 16:54
