Development Environments!

  • Oct 29, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Let's do development environments!

Everyone will be given the opportunity to give a quick 5-10 minute demo/presentation of their development environment(s). The goal is to help both beginners and experienced devs.

    I'm prepping a little tour of LightTable for all you emacs-heads ;)

    I've recently done a whirlwind tour - IntelliJ -> Emacs -> Sublime and now back to IntelliJ with the new Cursive plugin. I think we're on to something with Cursive!

    I've spent most of the Thursday evening, i.e. Friday morning trying to
    install emacs24 on debian, with failure. I've tried various websites
    with various instructions, including,
    http://clojure.jr0cket.co.uk/perfect-environment/emac
    http://www.plusastra.com/2012/11/installing-emacs-24-on-debian-wheezy.html

    I'm sure if I did apt-get install emacs, I'd get emacs23, but
    I want emacs24, and the websites seems to make it sound like it's
    trivial to do. But....it isn't. I want to know if people are just using mac book airs/pros, or ubuntu or mint, because stuff just works, like getting emacs and clojure to just work, without a billion other little issues cropping up. I can't get it to work. It has do do with apt-get, and /etc/apt/sources.list, and debain stable versus non stable, and on, and on, and yadda, yadda, yadda. If I'm going to encounter these sorts of hassles with mac, then I don't want to spend the money.

      All the instructions I found were for Ubuntu, not Debian. It was not simple to put emacs24 on Debian. Check out the subtle differences at

      Check out the subtle differences at http://wikemacs.org/i...­ and http://emacs.naquadah...­ As I write this, I had emacs24 working at one point, and now it doesn't. It's making me want to take the plunge into the apple world.

    With Emacs and Cider as a primary Clojure development interface, I can jump between my MacAir and other systems ... I just need to sync the code. For that, I'm using Git or Dropbox. Dunno if that gives you any ideas.

    Hi Victor.

    I'm sure that we'll all have lots of opinions to share about our work machines. I'm tote a 15" Retina around on my bike all day and would love to show you what I'm working with.

    In addition to commenting on development environment, could people comment on how they actually program. I just put debiann 7.1 on a 17.3 inch laptop, and I don't like lugging it around. I've been reading how the macbook air has lots of battery life, and some testimonials say it channges lives by not having to worry about lugging around extra weight and worring about the laptop dying. But can you program on a 13 inch screen, or collaborate. I'd prefer a 15" mac book pro with retina display if I had the money. Basically, the last time I was at a clojure meeting, I saw a lot of mac laptops floating around, and everyone seemed to be partial to emacs. I may just try to buy some version of a mac laptop if I infer from peoples comments that my productivity and quality of programming life would go up by orders of magnitude, i.e. not having to worry about the battery life, the high resolution display, the quality of the keyboard, the portability of non 17.3 inch laptop, etc.

    That works for me.

    Perhaps Tuesday the 29th would be a better fit for everyone.

    I'm afraid I can't make it. I have a 7-year old that is planning on doing some trick-or-treating!
