## Support for LaTeX

We’re heading into math-y days at NMA, and @PradeepGeorge has turned on LaTeX. Put an equation between dollar signs, e.g. `$\exp(i\pi) = -1$`

and it will render like so \exp(i\pi) = -1. Here’s one of my favorite equations:

\mathbf{y} \sim \text{Poisson}(\exp(\mathbf{X}\mathbf{w}))

## Support for dates

We all know by now that dates and timezones can be confusing, so when you share a time and date, please use the date widget, which appears to the right of the post toolbar

.

It’s always been there, but very few people know about it. It allows to write dates which are timezone-aware and automatically translate. For instance, instead of writing 9PM Wednesday Cairo time, I can use the date widget like so:

This creates a date that is automatically translated into your local timezone, with automatic translation to other timezones on hover: 2020-07-22T19:00:00Z. We have people from over 50 countries here, let’s make it easier to understand each other with this tech!
