Some Useful Tools & Resources
ShareLaTeX - A complete online LaTeX environment that allows you to edit, compile, and view LaTeX documents (complete with supporting files such as figures and BibTeX databases) through a web browser. Also allows real-time collaboration on LaTeX documents. The underlying software is open source, so you can also host it on your own server.
QTikZ/KtikZ - A simple application that compiles a preview of entered PGF TikZ code in real time. This is a very useful tool for putting together attractive figures using TikZ and PGF Plots.
