I recently presented at the 2012 Kentucky MAA Annual meeting. It was an excellent conference held on the Bellarmine University campus in Louisville, KY. Back in October, I posted a bit about Beamer. At that time, I had not used Beamer very much. I have had a little more time to try it out though (my advisor also created his first Beamer presentation for this conference). Feel free to take a look at my presentation and give me feedback. You can download it at http://www.tylerclark12.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Continued-Radicals-and-Cantor-Sets.pdf.
None of the current themes are appealing to me. There are good and bad aspects to all of them. Does anyone know about any online guides for creating/altering Beamer themes?
On another note, one of my fellow graduate students, Elizabeth Krantz gave a very nice talk. When she had finished, our session leader shared a thought with us. He said he had heard that a good talk should have two things: one result and one joke and the audience should know the difference between the two.
