    Emacs Monthly Hackers Group

    Our last Emacs get-together of the year will be hosted at Workday’s new offices in Beaverton. We're going to celebrate with a collection of lightning talks and show-casing new things we've learned or built...essentially, live demos of our #cool-til Slack channel 😄

    After our show and tell session, we'll retire to a nearby restaurant for food and drinks. Hope to see you there.

    Emacs Monthly Hackers Group

    Tonight we'll be hacking on Emacs' own shell, eshell. We'll begin with a overview of its capabilities and how it compares to better known, but not-as-extendable, shells. We'll then see how this "REPL with File System Controls" can be easily hacked and crafted into a most-amazing tool of awesome.

    Workday Beaverton Office

    This evening, Howard Abrams will kick off our new Emacs Hackery season by showing off some Emacs features for hacking Emacs Lisp…. that’s right, using Emacs to program Emacs Lisp (what a concept). This will be followed by some interesting ways to look up Emacs functions, which includes the illustrious suggest.el project.

    With our environment initialized, we’ll start to hack on a new project (a game) that uses some of the new data structure libraries that have showed up in the Emacs ecosystem lately.

    Emacs Monthly Hackers Group

    This month, the Emacs Hackers assemble for lightning talks demonstrating the results of last month’s project. Followed by a session of Hacking on Org Mode Tasks.

    Due to a posted tweet about automatic refiling of old tasks, we figured we could hack Emacs to analyze the timestamps associated with tasks and archive or delete tasks that are too old to be relevant.

    Our hack nights are collaborative group programming and quite a bit of fun, especially if you know little about Emacs Lisp. We pick simple projects that can be started during our hack night, but that can be polished and personalized afterwards.

    Hope to see you there!

    Emacs Hackers Meetup

    For this month, our Hacker Meetup will be hacking a personalized breadcrumb tool. Many breadcrumb-like tools and functions already exist (using find-tag and pop-tag is one of these), but writing your own breadcrumb functions with marks from your own favorite commands, could be both fun and useful when jumping around a large code base or document. We’re planning on pair programming to come up with a couple of implementations and share our implementations and discoveries.

    Time permitting, we will have lightning talks about anything interesting our local hackers have found or made. If you have something to share, by all means, come along.

    This will be followed by Office Hours, where we can all get together and discuss, fix or hack on new or existing projects. If you have a little or big project or problem you'd like to solve, bring it, and pair up with someone who may have some experience in that area.

    Hope to see you all there!

    Note: We've started a PDX-oriented Emacs Slack group, pdx-emacs.slack.com. Interested? Contact someone in the group to get an invitation.

    Emacs Monthly Hackers Group

    Tonight, our Emacs Hangout will feature a presentation by Howard Abrams on "Some" Emacs Lisp Best Practices ... Details of this:

    While I'm not, by any means, an expert on what the community, after 30 some-odd years, agrees to regarding the best way to write Emacs Lisp, I will walk through some of what I've learned in creating a ELPA project. These tips should be applicable for any one writing Emacs Lisp whether or not they will be submitting that code to as a community package project.

    The presentation will be followed by "Office Hours", where we can all get together and discuss, fix or hack on new or existing projects. If you have a little or big project or problem you'd like to solve, bring it, and pair up with someone who may have some experience in that area.

    Hope to see you all there!

    PDX Emacs Hackers Meetup

    Tonight, our Emacs Hangout will feature a presentation on using Emacs to develop Haskell projects (Thank you Cyd).

    A partially completed project, Emacs config, and instructions will be provided before the talk. A Docker image will be provided for those who do not want to install all of the required tools. Packages (briefly) demonstrated will be intero, haskell-mode, haskell-snippets, hlint-refactor, flycheck, company, and projectile.

    Topics covered will be: automatic type and style checking, type signature insertion, inspecting type and info of thing at point, automatic refactoring using compiler and lint suggestions, yasnippet templates, jumping to definitions (including 3rd party definitions), loading the current buffer into the REPL, and running tests.

    Hope to see you all there!

    Emacs Hack Night

    Tonight, our Emacs Hangout will feature two lightning talks (one oriented to less experienced Emacsians):

    • Introduction to customizing Emacs with Emacs Lisp, by Matthew Hoselton

    • Show and tell for using Emacs to give Demonstrations, by Howard Abrams

    These will be followed by a Hack Night, where we can all get together and hack on new or existing projects, or work on some of the ideas we learned about tonight. If you have a little or big project or problem you'd like to solve, bring it, and pair up with someone who may have some experience in that area.

    Hope to see you all there!
