How To Start An Emacs Meetup! - Harry Schwartz - 3pm

Harry Schwartz (co-founder of EmacsNYC) will discuss the joys and perils of growing a local technical community.

Techniques and Tools for Literate DevOps - Howard Abrahms - 5pm

Emacs For Scholarly Writing - Erik Hetzner - 6pm

Many scientists and humanists are beginning to believe that the best way to ensure the longevity of their research is by using plain text formats. Reproducible research, where code and data and published alongside an article, is also gaining popularity. Emacs is highly suited to implementing these solutions. I will explore ways that we can help support scholars who use Emacs.
