# Transcript
-Following is a somewhat hasty self-transcription of my talk. Please
-don't hesitate to [mailto:corwin@bru.st](ask for clarification) or to
-add any clarifications you feel helpful back into the EmacsConf wiki.
-
There is a visual gimmick underlaying the initial remarks. We are
looking at the first (first-slide ("Welcome") showing how the org
markdown looks on other editors, including cygwin emacs, Notepad++,
Sublime, VS Code, and cygwin vim. As each is closed we see the next,
until we reveal GUI Emacs running org-mode in a full-both frame.
-My name is Corwin Brust and I will be talking about getting started
-with Emacs Today. I have been an Emacs user for a long time-
-
-First of all thanks and a huge welcome to the conference..(_15s_)
-
-On behalf of and back to the other organizers. It has been cool to
-have a peek backstage.
-
-So. I've used a lot of different editors in my time. That's about 25
-years as a professional software engineer. And most of that
-time I've been using Emacs. (~54s_)
-
-I'll talk a little bit in a minute (if I can ever find my slides)
-about how I got into Emacs, but if you've used Emacs and a lot of
-other editors for a long time, something that you notice right away is
-that you get good with it in a way that stays meaningful. You learn
-new things, those things stick with you. You learn how to- how to
-make it do new tricks and then keep doing those tricks. (~1m26s_)
-
-I want to mention this conference isn't about (whoops: "this talk")
-how to adjust your configuration specifically. I don't have a bunch
-of good code samples in here. There are a bunch of other great talks,
-especially Andrew's that I think may be aimed more at that "hey, I'm
-just getting started with Emacs what are some things to try to make it
-more comfortable for me starting?" [subject/audience? cezb]. (~2m07s_)
-
-This is about how to think about the problem space more. (_2m10s_)
-
-Hopefully a good way to warm up as we start thinking about some of the
-lightning talks later on. (I'm going to bring up my IRC buffer
-[offscreen] in case I run into time- I didn't get my stopwatch started
-for this one.) (_2m25s_)
-
-So, alright: let's dive in. (_2m30s_)
-
-We assume that we want to install packages, and maybe configure some
-features. This is particularly from the perspective of where we're
-working with a bunch of others on a team and we want to get something
-done. (_2m42s_)
-
-Some of us probably have mature Emacs workflows, others may be
-installing it for the first time. (_2m50s_)
-
-So the first questions is, you know- in that context: what's the value
-proposition? Why should I mess with my machine, my mature Emacs
-configuration, impose my way of thinking and ideas over the way
-somebody else is learning Emacs? (_3m09m_)
-
-It can be [laugh] I'm off my slides here a little bit.. (_3m13s_)
-
-It can be a little tricky to learn Emacs. One thing that helps us a
-lot is if people that we are working with can tell us, kinda,
-keystroke-for-keystroke at times what to do and explain what
-everything is doing. (_3m30s_)
-
-And using the same packages as others can really help us working
-together on a project. (_3m36s_)
-
-Speaking from my personal experience, it took me decades to get to the
-point where I was excited to program in Emacs Lisp. (_3m26s_)
-
-I've programed in a lot of programming languages, but Lisp wasn't on
-my list. I looked at my config, that I was copy-pasting around from
-generation after generation of .emacs file or re-crafting it by hand
-and from Internet searches, to get things that I needed when I would
-quickly go install Emacs to start some new job or contract, and
-quickly get though that work-flow that caused me to go install the
-program. (_4m15s_)
-
-You know, just simple little one-liners that got committed to memory
-over decades eventually just lead [me] to a sort of "hey, what's going
-on here". (_4m27s_)
-
-And I credit my good friend Jeff Goff who died earlier in 2020 for my
-lifelong love of Emacs. Perhaps Erik and I will talk a little more
-about that at another talk we have scheduled but Jeff was a huge
-influence on us in a number of ways and a huge contributer to the Raku
-programming language which is very cool. (_4m52s_)
-
-So, understanding how to make a good decision about splitting up
-configuration in a way to share it with people with really different
-uses of Emacs. That's actually a complicated topic, and I want to off
-and stare at it for a second: (_5m11s_)
-
-I think Emacs is about people, so that means it is about community.
-And community means we're going to invite disagreement. In fact that
-disagreement isn't necessarily a road-block to our project, in fact
-that some of the work our project can invite us to do is to get closer
-to each other by inviting those disagreements, by learning from people
-of different styles, and from how they argue, and thinking about why
-they have that perspective and what technical benefits that perhaps
-radical point of view might carry away. Some people are really
-aggressive arguers others are very passive and really couch their
-ideas in distancing terms, "well probably this is a good idea" or
-"please double check me". Those don't always indicate how certain a
-person is. Because we're different. We have different ways of
-communicating ideas such as certainty or excitement. (_6m23s_)
-
-When we thinking about a bunch of really diverse programmers
-approaching Emacs probably one of our first really big challenges is
-just to pick what we're going to go after. There are a number of
-existing kit installs and things like this. My argument is that you
-can get pretty far just trading files around. And maybe the more
-value conversation to have is making the hard decisions, e.g. "should
-we have vertical completion", should that be out of the box and those
-that want the traditional splayed-out over a sing line such as the
-mode line will have to add a line to their configuration. (_7m26s)
-
-The way to get there?
-
-How do we find out what works?
-
-We don't want to slow down the people who are super productive with
-Emacs, and ask them to completely break their workflows to make it
-easier for new folks, at the same time we do want to make sure those
-new people. (_7m42s_)
-
-At the same time, we do want to make sure those new people arre
-excited by Emacs and not turned off by having to learn the entire
-jungle of Emacs history in the form of it's unique technical stylings
-in terms of frames, buffers, and other unique Emacs viewpoints on
-interface concepts, especially. (_8m15s_)
-
-The encouragement here is to keep using the project team as a
-crucible. Rather than following the defaults of, um, finding the
-simplest customizations that generally work, what if we tried to look
-for fairly specific configuration that we'll expect basically all of
-our developers to be using, at least when the submit bug
-reports. (_8m48s_)
-
-In particular with this, I think that degree of experimentation can
-drive back into the Emacs development process. In the development
-mailing list.. [] In the context of Emacs development as a greater
-entity, we see this struggle. We have the sense that some things can
-"never" be change. I think one thing that can help us get there is
-evidence that says "hey, my 30-40 person team is using this set of
-bindings and here is what we learned about new Emacs users coming in
-and trying that". (10m)
-
-So let's just recap real quick: in theory Emacs works out of the
-box. That means we are free to throw it all away and start over.
-[trouble with slides, again]
-
-Our goal is to enable users- to unlock our computers, to do as much
-with them as possible. My work of encouragement is experiment with it.
-And think really specifically about how the development users may be
-different from each other, as you are configuring the development
-environment of emacs for developing on a project.
-
-That's my talk, etc, answer any questions.(_12m09s_)
-
-Do you use Emacs as a Community Building Tool? (_13m15s_)
-
-Do /i/ use Emacs a community building tool? Or *how* do I use Emacs as a
-community building tool. [amin: "it doesn't say"]
-
-Yes, absolutely. I think Emacs is an ambassador to the gnu
-tool-chain. in the fullness of time we will see an Emacs that will
-make others, Android and iOS, dream. That's why that mock us and say
-that Emacs is an operating system. It's because it could be, if cared
-for it to be. It's quite a threatening product in terms of the number
-of problem spaces it can address, how many types of users it can
-satisfy. (_13m01s_)
-
-And the things that we can do to make it robust in those environments.
-We're always thinking about the weak points but is Emacs a community
-building tool? Heck yeah. (_13m13s_)
-
-[we agree that I'll write my answers to the remaining questions, I say
-thanks more, and we're done. ps, I'll get to your question or
-comments I can find a response to within the next week, I expect]
