Sorry everyone! Didn't realize my laptop (with lid closed)'s mic was set as default till near the end of the hangout. :S Looking forward to next hangout! Thanks again to Sacha for organizing these.

PS. If anyone cares to chat sometime and trade experiences with audio/visual/game, or literate programming in Emacs, send me a line!... Perhaps we might even develop some  eye/ear-catchy demos to present at the next hangout!

+Sacha Chua That's quite kind, but let me try switching to a louder alarm clock first.

Let's see, no doubt there's an emacs function for that... :)

NOTE: New, earlier time!

I'll update this page with the streaming URL so that you can watch it from here, or you can catch it on YouTube afterwards. To ask questions, post comments on this page or use the Q&A application that will appear while viewing the video live.

We will probably cover how to read Emacs Lisp code more effectively with describe-function, apropos, eldoc, ggtags, find-function, etc.

Enjoy!

(For reference, this will be at April 8 Wed 4-5PM Toronto time - Google+ should automatically translate it into your local timezone.)

I've reposted the Emacs Conference 2013 videos at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4th0AZixyRE9bb8OevAb7I8RuaWJQWnO . Now that they're part of the "Emacs conferences and hangouts" channel at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4th0AZixyRE9bb8OevAb7I8RuaWJQWnO, it should be easier for other people to keep track of new videos. =)

Super neat! I hope you'll demo that in the future. :) Sometimes all we need is that extra little push...
