On Racket Support in Emacs Org-Mode

Earlier I blogged about Epresent, which is basically a piece of code for making Org-Mode suitable for preparing presentation slides. There are times when I can’t resist mentioning the innovative Racket programming language in a presentation. In those situations I tend to want to have syntax-highlighted Scheme code on my slides, and also to evaluate the code snippets and insert the results next to the code listing. This is apparently the sort of thing one can do with Org-Mode Babel, for a variety of languages.

Presenting with Emacs

Text rendering in Emacs has been looking mighty good since 23.1, and this opens up possibilities to do even more in Emacs. For example, I recently came across something called epresent.el on GitHub, by Eric Schulte et al. The epresent.el Emacs Lisp file leverages Org-Mode to implement a simple presentation mode for Emacs. Using Org-Mode is, at least for me, faster than struggling with something like Impress.

A Summary of the History of Lua

The other day I gave a presentation on the history of the programming language Lua, in a HOPL conference inspired seminar course at TKK. If you asked a presentation expert, you’d probably be told that the slides have too many words in them, but perhaps that will make them easier to follow without the accompanying talk. In any case, the presentation slides have been posted on the web.
