KNOW YOUR HTTP!

Some posters for your workplace

You can take these to any print shop (such as Kinko's) and they will be well-equipped to print them for you:

KNOW YOUR HTTP STATUS CODES!

For Sale

You can now buy these posters on Zazzle.com! Full disclosure: We make about $3.50 per poster.

Build

To generate the posters, simply run:

$ make

In order for the build process to be successful, you will need the following:

  • LaTeX
  • The beamerposter and cclicences LaTeX packages and their dependencies (if you installed texlive you may already have these installed)
  • imagemagick to build the thumbnail images
  • Make

You can install TeXLive in Ubuntu by running sudo apt-get install texlive. Mac users may try MacTeX, and the preferred distribution for Windows is MikTeX. If you don't have make, you should be able to compile it manually with the pdflatex command or similar means.
