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? -- Karl Voit
