Legendrian knots are smooth knots which are compatible with an ambient contact structure. They are an essential object of study in contact and symplectic geometry, and many easily posed questions about these knots remain unanswered. In this talk I will introduce Legendrian knots, their properties, some of their invariants. Expect lots of pictures.
