Learn yourself Emacs for Great Good

During this workshop, we'll go through setting up and building up an Emacs workflow. Emacs is a very powerful tool for working with both Clojure and Haskell. Having a tool that allows you to recompile files on the fly and get all the required information without leaving your editor helps to build a great workflow.

We'll use Emacs Live with some custom packs, and will go through the configuration and adjustment steps, then go through Magit, Clojure-mode, Cider and many more modes.

    Sadly I will not be able to go - I hope more Emacs centric events come forwards... I would like to learn more about Elisp programming - If a next opportunity appears I would love to give a lighting talk on Deft + Dropbox + Simplenote + OrgMode integration. Cheers!

      I am preparing a blog-post on the matter :) - I use simpleNote-mode when I working on my Linux Workstation ! I will post a link here !

    Let's do some basics. I'm sure many people won't know emacs well.

    I highly recommend to bring your computer. I'm aware of how to configure stuff for mac os x and linux. I'm not sure if emacs will work well on windows machines.

    Does anyone want to share a couple of tricks form his own Emacs setup? We'd be happy to hear a lightning talk from you!

    A little question here: what would you like to get covered? Right now, we're planning to concentrate most on Emacs for Clojure development, any hints on how we could make it even better / more interesting for you?

      I'd like to know more about the integration with the "outside" world, triggering custom shell commands and getting their output to be used by emacs. Since many languages provide their tools outside of an editor I'd like to feed the generated information back in a useable like triggering clang to get errors highlighted, running spell for spellchecking, and so on... sorry I'm a Vim guy trying to get the hang of emacs for about 2 years now....

      I'm afraid you will never hear about Clojure script from me. I'm not a big fan of it.
