To create an environment that is welcoming, harrassment-free, and enjoyable to everyone, we have a code-of-conduct that we following for every get together.


Josh Holbrook github is a Staff Data Engineer at DoubleVerify and will be speaking about literate programming using org mode.

Org mode, the task management and document markup system for Emacs, includes a tool called Babel which may be used for literate programming. In this talk I will explain literate programming, discuss how Org mode and Babel enable it, and go over an example using the slide deck itself. I will also cover some real-world experiences writing literate programs in Emacs and the pros and cons of doing so.
