Common Roots has granted us the Common Room 6p to 10p on June 13th, 2011.
This gives us a bunch of time to plan, and this might well be a good time to have our discussion about emacs-lisp. I'm willing to bet that emacs-lisp is the most commonly used lisp (judged by lines of code in daily use, and number of daily users). It would be great to have a bunch of short talks here, because it's such a rich topic. Some that I can think of are:
- Summary of emacs-lisp. What's its relationship to other lisps (notably common lisp and scheme)?
- Org-mode: an exciting new emacs utility, and an enormous feat of emacs-lisp programming.
- Org-babel: Eric Iverson was interested in talking about his experiences with this, and that sounds great to me. Org-babel allows you to put executable code inside org-mode files, making it possible to do things like repeatable research, literate programming, template expansion, etc.
Please contact me if you would like to talk about one of the above, or some other topic related to emacs-lisp.
