2020 Jahresbericht der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung (Teubner)  
This is an account of a mathematician's first experiences with the proof assistant (interactive theorem prover) Isabelle/HOL, including a discussion on the rationale behind formalising mathematics and the choice of Isabelle/HOL in particular, some 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.
