Hey! EmacsConf just concluded and it was a really awesome one this year. A lot of interesting talks. It was a lot of fun interacting with everyone during the event. For folks who where there, "hi again!".
If you have read my previous blogs, you might be already aware that I have been playing around a lot with
tree-sitter in Emacs. And so, this year for EmacsConf I decided to talk about the same. It was my fist talk at EmacsConf and was really smooth experience :D. Thanks a lot to the organizers, mainly Sacha Chua and Leo Vivier for helping me through all of it. Also thanks to Bhavin Gandhi whom I've bounced off a lot of ideas.
In case you are interested, you can checkout my talk at https://emacsconf.org/2022/talks/treesitter/ . The recording, transcript and Q&A should be available there. The recording is available on YouTube as well if you wanna go that route.
I'm still to catch up on all the talks, but from the ones that I have seen, these are the ones that I personally found useful:
- The Emacs Buddy initiative: Seems like a interesting way to get in touch with folks who have similar interests, I should probably consider signing up for this :D.
- Attending and organizing Emacs meetups: Lot of great insights into conducting Emacs meetups and guides on how one can attend/create one.
- Results of the 2022 Emacs Survey: Great set of insights in to how different trends related to Emacs looks like. Looking forward to more analysis around the data.
- Org workflows for developers: While I don't personally use Org, the idea here seems pretty interesting.
- Emacs should become a Wayland compositor: This seems like a great next step after EXWM.
- rde Emacs introduction: I've been following some of his development on YouTube.
- Getting detached from Emacs: Looks like a great alternative to run servers and other long running processes from Emacs.
- Top 10 reasons why you should be using Eshell: I've been trying to switch to eshell and this shows a lot of interesting features of eshell and how having lisp available improves a lot of things.
- Emacs was async before async was cool: Neat intro to working with network calls in Emacs in an async manner
- The Wheels on D-Bus: Loved the idea of being able to use D-Bus from within Emacs to interact with more of the system
