September 5th 2PM: Working and publishing with GNU Emacs and Org-mode
with Sebastian Rose

Org-mode is for keeping notes, maintaining ToDo lists, doing project
planning, and authoring with a fast and effective plain-text system.

[Org-Mode: Your Life in Plain Text. http://orgmode.org]

In common with parent Emacs, the incredibly versatile text editor and
all round operating system, org-mode branches out spider-like to
creatively embrace a vast range of interests. Presenting a fine
example of a healthy free software project, with an active development
community, new features are constantly added extending org-mode into
the realms of advanced web and document publishing, blogging,
mind-mapping, brainstorming, general hypertextual excess, and
multimedia management. At the same time, relying on plain old text
files for all data, org-mode is both portable and simple to use.

This workshop, led by active org-mode contributor Sebastian Rose, will
introduce org-mode use and project planning, with an emphasis on
publishing by way of XHTML export and LaTeX, org-mode for code
management, and a look at possible extension of org-mode and related
