Monthly Meetup—Emacs + Python

Monday, May 5, 2014
6:30 PM

WeWork Soho West
8th floor lounge
69 Charlton St.
New York, NY 10014

We’ll be starting at 6:30 with pizza and beer. Drew Werner will be giving a full-length talk, and we’ll also have a lightning talk by Evan Misshula.

Drew Werner (twitter, github) will be talking about using Emacs as a Python IDE:

With a little effort, Emacs can be a powerful, multi-language IDE with code completion, documentation lookup, and more. Taking Python as our language, we will show how to use the the auto-complete, epc, and jedi.el libraries to create a semantically rich editing experience. We’ll discuss how these libraries work together and how to customize them for your own setup.

Evan Misshula will be giving a lightning talk on The best of both worlds: Combining the best REPL (IPython 2.0) and Editor (Emacs):

Evan will provide an introduction to incremental analysis through IPython moderated by the editing features of Emacs. A brief introduction to integrating with Org-mode will also be given. Advantages over the R console and Bash shell will be discussed.
