I am looking forward to it!

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.

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

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?
