Notes from the Emacs Skills Exchange Session at DebConf11 //at 12:29 //by abe

from the spontaneous dept.

Thomas Koch asked at DebConf 11 for a Skills Exchange session about Emacs.

As nobody stepped up for that session for quite some time, I did. But I knew just the answers to half of his questions by mind, so I left the remainder for someone else. Luckily Kan-Ru Chen and Sebastian Tennant stepped up for most of the remainder.

We had a quite full meeting room and the notes that Kan-Ru and me prepared in Gobby (debian package) got collaboratively extended from being a braindump and guide what to talk about to a quite helpful, but compact and dense Emacs introduction.

I’ll probably use this as a base for an Emacs tutorial or workshop at some European FLOSS events, but I wouldn’t be able to have such a good and comprehensive base for that without that Skills Exchange session.

So thanks to all who contributed!

Update, 02:31: There also seem to exist an Emacs Lisp implementation of the Obby protocol called Ebby, but it doesn’t seem to support the 0.5 version of Gobby, only version 0.3.

Hackergotchi of Axel Beckert

About...

This is the blog or weblog of Axel Stefan Beckert (aka abe or XTaran) who thought, he would never start blogging... (He also once thought, that there is no reason to switch to this new ugly Netscape thing because Mosaïc works fine. That was about 1996.) Well, times change...

He was born 1975 at Villingen-Schwenningen, made his Abitur at Schwäbisch Hall, studied Computer Science with minor Biology at University of Saarland at Saarbrücken (Germany) and now lives in Zürich (Switzerland), working at the IT Support Group (ISG) of the Departement of Physics at ETH Zurich.
