Emacs: Everday, Everyway

A session at Vermont Code Camp

Saturday 10th September, 2011

11:30am to 12:30pm (EST)

“Emacs: a great OS, shame it’s missing a decent editor”. :) Emacs is indeed a powerful platform for running a whole set applications that serve to enhance its (actually quite awesome!) editing capabilities into a powerful environment for doing nearly any task. From quickly editing text files to intensely editing source code to building projects to checking email, browsing the web, IM/IRC, twitter,controlling multimedia, and organizing your tasks lists … emacs really is a “”great”" OS. Grounded in the presenter’s everyday usage, we’ll explore both those mentioned applications, but also talk about the powerful core editing capabilities that make everything come together in a highly functional environment. We’ll probably digress into some of the features the presenter doesn’t personally use, but are clearly Awesome all the same.
