Zachary Kanfer will be giving a talk on writing games with Emacs:

Games are a great way to get started writing programs in any language. In Emacs Lisp, they’re even better—you use the same exact techniques to extend Emacs, configuring it to do what you want. In this presentation, I livecode tic-tac-toe. You’ll see how to create a basic major mode, make functions, store state, and set keybindings.

Bailey Ling will be giving a lightning talk on evil-mode:

Bailey will provide a lightning talk on evil-mode, aptly named after the editor of the beast. He’ll show why evil-mode can make Vim veterans feel at home while exposing them to the power available in Emacs.
