Arthur C. Clarke once said that "Any sufficiently-advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic," and those of us that spend our days contending with code and configuration know that we need all the magic we can get. Text is a hostile environment, and demands powerful tools to tame it.

For the first time, the St. Louis Vim Geeks and the St. Louis Emacs User Group are joining forces to talk about two of the most powerful text-editing tools available. We'll compare, contrast, and generally celebrate the strengths (and speak delicately of the weaknesses) of these two titans of text editing, Emacs and Vim.

Join us Wednesday, April 23rd, at Joyia Tapas. We'll get started around 6:30pm, but feel free to show up a little earlier if you'd like to grab a bite or have a drink beforehand.

Come find out what a "sufficiently-advanced" text editor looks like, and how to unleash a little more magic on your text-editing tasks.

See you there!
