PDX Emacs Hangout

  • Oct 21, 2015 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our first Emacs Hangout will have the following agenda:

Main Talk. Overview of Magit, a Git Porcelain for Emacs presented by Will Clifford and Howard Abrams. This will be around 15 minutes, so it won't answer all your questions, but should get you started.

Lightning Talks. Have something to share? Great! Each lightning talk with be around 5 minutes to show off something cool your learned, so come prepared! We don't know how many of these we'll have, but we're flexible.

Office Hours. We'll have a white board where you can write down issues you want to resolve or projects you are working on, and others will come and work with you to solve them.

We may tweak this format in the future, but this is our plan. We'll publish notes about this meeting at our Github repository.

Couple of notes about this meeting:

1. Enter on SW 2nd.  Arrive by Max? Walk around the building.

2. Doors lock at 7, so people arriving after 7 will need to call the note on the door to let them in.

3. We will finish office hours at 8, and then continue at a local pub.

Note: Our monthly hangouts will be the third Wednesday of each month...however, we may alter this pattern for November and December.

    In case you missed my demonstration of Magit, I recorded it at home this evening and posted it to Youtube.

    Very useful! There is definitely a wealth of knowledge in the group. Everyone is very approachable and curious about how you use Emacs (or would like to use it).

    Great seeing everyone last night. Wanted to mention that I have uploaded my notes from the meetup at

    We are still trying to figure out the best way to share, and may convert that over to the Wiki so that more people can easily edit. In the meantime, pull requests accepted!

    What are the requirements to follow along with the Magit talk tonight?

    I'm glad so many hackers are planning on coming out to our first meetup. I hope each of you have something to share during our "lightning talk" round... keep in mind, many of us are new to Emacs, so anything you can show will be novel and interesting to many.

    If you aren't familiar with "office hours" (when it comes to user groups), check out this article:

    I'm very excited to meet you all!
