In 1976, hacking through the night, Richard Stallman (Godfather of Free Software) and Guy Steele (Midwife of Java) produced the first version of Emacs. It has evolved over the last 40 years to become the ultimate hackers' toy box - filled with tools, great fun and infinitely malleable.
Join us for a special West London Hack Night where Nic Ferrier - the UK's premier Emacs Wizard* - will show you how to get started, the feats you can accomplish, and how Emacs can be molded to do your bidding.
We'll be splitting the evening into two parts - a guided tour from Nic, followed by a hands-on hacking session. It'll be fast & furious, but we promise we'll get your brain off to a running start.
It's a free event, but we have limited space so chalk up your RSVP now and we'll see you there. :-)
PS - You don't have to be based in West London to join us. All are welcome.
* The UK has other premier Emacs people, of course. Off the top of my head I can think of at least two Elves, an Armoured Bear, and an Orc.
