Emacs as a programming IDE

For Python, R, and Julia

Once upon a time (not that long ago), powerful text editors such as Vim and Emacs were the only nice interfaces to work with code. Nowadays, there are countless sleek and more GUI-oriented tools such as VS Code, RStudio, or JupyterLab that provide amazing IDEs, without the learning curve.

In this webinar, I will show some of the many reasons why I can’t let go of Emacs, then show how it can be used as a programming IDE for Python, R, and Julia.
