Literate Programming with Org Mode - December 2020

On December 7th, 2020, we had a talk by Josh Holbrook

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.

Josh has made his slides available, as well as their source
