I will introduce various examples of Shimura varieties, and explain what some important classes of their compactifications are like. I will begin with complex coordinates, but when good theories of their integral models are available, I will also explain what they are like. The lectures will be for people who are not already familiar with these topicsfor most of them, some willingness to see matrices larger than 2x2 ones should suffice. (I hope to allow simple factors of all possible types A, B, C, D, and E to show up if time permits. Nevertheless, it is not necessary to know beforehand what this means.)
