Version 1.0

lecture: Emacs Lisp

Why Emacs' extension language is worth a second look


Emacs is a popular text editor, especially among Lisp programmers, but its full potential is rarely used. A lot of its users use built-in and external packages, however if they wish to improve existing or write new ones to improve their workflow, they need to learn its extension language Emacs Lisp.

The presentation starts off with the brief history, pecularities and misconceptions about Emacs Lisp, after that the most recent development, improvements and possibilities of it are demonstrated with the author's and other Emacs Lisp hackers' packages. Some of the topics covered are workflow improvement, development helpers, audio and video demonstrations and graphical games.
