Excerpt

This talk will present org-mode, a package for the emacs editor, as a tool useful for everything from writing talks, to keeping a journal, organizing your todos, and developing literate code

Description

Emacs is an editor so old it predates any of the operating systems it now runs on. Despite that, it’s an incredibly well-maintained software system that is the basis for the writing and organizational system I can’t live without: org-mode.

In this talk I’ll show the slice of org-mode and its features I use which includes: writing literate code, writing and giving talks, keeping track of my todo list, writing a textbook, and keeping a daily journal.

Speaking experience

I've spoken at the last two OSBs, at a couple of ignite events, as well as a large number of classes I've taught in universities, code schools, and library classrooms.
