This month, WTD and SGV LUG are joining forces! We'll begin the evening with an introduction to both groups, followed by a brief discussion of SSGs (Static Site Generators).

Afterwards: we'll have a presentation from Sean Marquez! Sean's presentation will appeal directly to:
- software developers who are opinionated about text editors
- developers & writers who are curious about text rendering to diagrams, i.e., PlantUML:

PRESENTATION:

The best editor is neither vim nor emacs, it’s Vim and Emacs! Spacemacs is a community-driven Emacs distribution that comes built-in with many popular packages, including Evil-Mode - a vim layer for Emacs, and Org-Mode - a tool for note taking and/or project management that utilizes a rich plain text markup language. This presentation will be a live demo of some of orgmode and spacemacs' features and capabilities.
