May be of interest for students, mathematicians interested to enter the world of formalisation.

Includes discussions on my first projects and on the rationale behind formalising mathematics and the choice of Isabelle/HOL in particular, some basic instructions for new users, some technical and conceptual observations focussing on some of the first difficulties encountered, and some thoughts on the use and potential of proof assistants for mathematics.
