Deech, you provided a great overview of some of the many great features of Emacs. I'm looking forward to next month!

Very disappointed, but something last minute came up and I can't make it. I'll catch the next one!
Looking forward to it!
I realize that proposing the use of "kits" can be controversial among Emacs users, but I did want to suggest that folks look into "Prelude":
Bozhidar Batsov has put in a tremendous amount of time and effort curating a ready-made-setup that provides a lot of nice features (modules) "out of the box", while also promoting an authentic Emacs experience – arrow keys are even disabled by default, with a minibuffer notice indicating you should use C-p, C-n, etc.
I was essentially new to Emacs in December 2011, and Prelude helped me find my way pretty quickly, while also allowing me to customize my environment with zero friction.
Anyway, give it a spin, read Prelude's source code, and you may find that it helps to accelerate your Emacs proficiency and improve your overall experience.

Perhaps you could give a talk on prelude?

Sure, I can consider that. I'd also like to improve my knowledge and use of "magit", and preparing a presentation is a good way to solidify one's understanding of a subject:
Right at this moment, though, I can't commit to a date given work pressures; but I hope to be able to present some time in the first half of 2014.

Yes please, on both topics.
I am looking forward to it too. Always great to learn additional tips and tricks.
I'm very happy that Deech created this meetup group. I hope to make the first meeting along with my daughter. Both of us are Emacs users.
Hi all,The debut meeting will be a meet-and-greet followed by a whirlwind tour of Emacs. The topics go from beginner to advanced so hopefully there's something for everyone.
Sandwiches and soda/water will be provided. Please don't bring any alcohol, it's not allowed on the premises.
