20 October 2PM: pickle.el: GNU Emacs as artistic operating system.
Although blandly described as a versatile programmer's editor, free
software GNU Emacs serves as a prototype for a truly artistic
operating system with ready code exposure and political intent. GNU
Emacs presents code, in this case the Emacs Lisp language, as
interface; extension becomes application and mode of use within a
highly textual environment which embraces networked infrastructure and
information resources, local and remote shells, and common language
interpreters. GNU Emacs branches out spider-style to operate as
automated text editor, advanced publishing tool, multimedia authoring
environment, mail client, IDE, shell, and mind-mapping system, as well
as serving as adventurous exploratory code vehicle.
The workshop will commence with the basics of navigation and everyday
use (accessing help, moving through buffers), before addressing GNU
Emacs as application development environment for artists with simple
Lisp coding exercise, and interface to other software such as
SuperCollider and PD.
The workshop will make use of the http://1010.co.uk/pickle.el file
Some platform running GNU Emacs 22/23.
Fee: 10 euros
