WebM (172.0 MB) | MP4 (1008.5 MB)

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
