After the talk, many people asked about the minor modes and customizations. All my customizations are online at http://github.com/howardabrams/dot-files and a few of my minor modes are:

  • power-line for the cool looking mode line
  • org-tree-slide mode for converting an org mode file into a presentation
  • cider for the interface to Clojure

Sorry for going so fast. There is way too much stuff to cover in just 45 minutes. Let me know if I can help get you started.
