PDX Emacs Hangout

  • Mar 16, 2016 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This Emacs Hangout will have the following agenda:

Workshop for Literate Programming. Whether you hack in Clojure or JavaScript or something in between, we will demonstrate how to use the code blocks in org-mode to program the tough stuff using an updated variation on Donald Knuth's Literate Programming concept. We'll also cover some "Literate DevOps" (as shown in this demonstration ... or read up about it here).  Note: This is a workshop, so to fully participate, please bring a laptop running your favorite editor Emacs.

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. At 8:00, we will retire to Kell's for libations and to nerd the place up with Emacs Office Hours. Bring your latest project or issues, and get someone to help out.

We'll publish notes about this meeting at our Github repository.

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

    I really enjoyed the workshop, and good conversation afterwards! For anyone interested in using org-babel's code-blocks with ES6's Babel transpiler, check this out: http://rwx.io/blog/2016/03/09/org-with-babel-node-updated/

    I got it working this morning after some help from the blog's author and Howard.

    You are all very welcome. For those who have missed it, I spent my bus ride home transcribing the workshop into a tutorial. Might be a little...er, terse, but perhaps I can get a few people to proof it before I put it on Reddit or something?

    Really excellent workshop last night. Tons of useful stuff on org-mode, literate programming and collecting stuff for reproducible work.

    Type: `C-h v` and `org-version`

    Install: `M-x package-refresh-contents` `M-x package-install` and `org`

    I'll try to record it, but I'm also busy writing a tutorial as well.

    That said, this is going to be a really good, interesting workshop, that will really give you a sharp tool for your shed.

    Very disappointed to be missing this. Will it be recorded for later viewing? I've been spending a lot of energy trying to learn ELisp, and have been looking for ways to get the most I can from Emacs.
