About something interesting (placeholder)

by Dave Nolan

OneKey to rule them all, OneKey to find them, OneKey to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

by Joe Bloggs

I'd like to give a lightning tour of OneKey which reduces the burden of learning keybindings & commands. OneKey gives you mouseless menus of keybindings, commands, bookmarks, registers & yasnippets among other things. The menus are configurable, searchable and context specific, and can either be dynamically generated or static and saveable, and the best thing is that you only need to remember one keybinding. If there's time I'll also show how to build plugins for OneKey.

Palimsest

by Daniel Szmulewicz

Palimpsest, a minor mode providing deletion strategies, useful when writing text (as opposed to code).

REPL All The Things

by Kris Jenkins

REPL-driven development rocks. There's no better way to code than with live, instant feedback. But not every language supports it. Even those that could. In this lightning talk, I'll show you my experiments in bringing live coding to JavaScript, in a way that wouldn't be possible without the magic of Emacs.

You ?

Thank you @krisajenkins, gist updated :)

If we have time I'd like to do one:

The reader proposals

Racket has #;(....) for commenting out a form - could we have that?

Reading processes and buffers could be done with a function?

And finally, could namespaces be done with reader changes?

Owner

@nicferrier sounds good, I'll add it

I could do a lightning talk on an emacs interface to the BBC's iPlayer. (It needs help from someone who actually understands asynchronous event handling, and also from someone who has user-interface taste, but it does work)
