Please don't hesitate to store informations about Org Workshops on
Worg!  That will help other workshops to happen, and to reuse existing
content.  

Thanks,

On March 25th in Albuquerque New Mexico at the monthly meeting of the
Albuquerque Lisp/Scheme user group.

 Is it possible to attend ?

I would like to check with the group, but I am almost certain they
wouldn't mind extra attendees.

 Will you be video recording it ?


I have not previously been to an ABQ Lisp/Scheme meeting so I do not
know what their setup will be, but it sounds rather informal (a small
group many of which are already Org-mode literate) so my guess is that
it will not be video taped.  We may spend more time interactively
working through usage examples rather than sticking to a presentation
format.


 Best Regards,

 Bernard

No part of Germany at all.

Graz :-)

 Is that open to the public - and free?

No. It is for our «Interne Weiterbildung» (internal education
program) of our university where employees, students, and external
people can attend.

 Sounds interesting. 

I try to make sure that it will be interesting :-)

[O] Org-mode workshop: has anyone done this already?

2012-03-07 Thread Karl Voit
Hi!

I do have the please of conducting an Org-mode workshop (3x4 hours)
for up to twelve participants.

So far I am planning to show my (advanced) setup in form of my
workflows for misc things as a teaser and start with basics more or
less in the order of the Org-mode manual.

I am sure that there are other people having had the pleasure of
doing such a workshop before. Is there any course material available
so that I might take a look on the content?

Thanks!

We held two OrgCamps in France, one in January 2011, another 
one in April 2011.  The place to announce and document OrgCamps 
is on Worg:

  http://orgmode.org/worg/orgcamps.html

The idea behind the OrgCamp was to let people freely demonstrate
how they use Org and learn from that.  AFAIU, a workshop is more
centred on sharing _your_ experience, which of course is fine too.

If any case, please use the Worg page above to share deliverables
(presentations, hacks, etc.) and feedback on how it went!

This way we can let this idea grow.

Thanks!

Stumbled upon it already, thanks.

Yes, you're right.

Title of my workshop is «Using Emacs for advanced todo and project
management» because I want to get people already using Emacs and not
knowing about Org-mode.

So I expect participants (from our technical university) which are
Emacs savvy and just want to do a next step in their personal
information management. For this I am using Org-mode.

 If any case, please use the Worg page above to share deliverables
 (presentations, hacks, etc.) and feedback on how it went!

Hm.

So far my plan is to host workshop Org-mode-file containing
configuration examples and usage examples on GitHub. This enables my
participants to download the (updated) information any time.

I did not decide whether I should do this in English or in German
(the native language of my participants).

Either way: directly hosting on Worg does not seem practical to me
since I plan to submit/commit many times from now to the course,
causing unwanted notification spam or high load on Worg.

But if my material is of any use for others, I am glad to put a link
to it on Worg.



Background story

In the last hours I tried to install Emacs portable and Git portable
on such a XP machine from the workshop room. I planned to use git as
update-many-times-during-workshop-preserving-local-changes tool. The
usability of this is unfortunately horrible and merge conflicts are
not being solved automatically.

So I have to stick to a prepare-everything-on-github-upfront
attempt.

The format of my material will probably look like this:

[...]

With following ELISP code in your configuration you can do this
or that:

:conf: ;; this is ELISP code
:conf: (foo (bar))

In Org-mode this or that could probably look like this:

:org: :PROPERTIES:
:org: :ID: this-is-an-example
:org: :END:

[...]

That way I can parse for the «course configuration file» and «course
Org-mode example file» separately. GitHub is able to show this kind
of formatting directly.

But I do have to sleep over it again ...

Maybe you have some input too?
