Tonight, our Emacs Hangout will feature a presentation by Howard Abrams on "Some" Emacs Lisp Best Practices ... Details of this:

While I'm not, by any means, an expert on what the community, after 30 some-odd years, agrees to regarding the best way to write Emacs Lisp, I will walk through some of what I've learned in creating a ELPA project. These tips should be applicable for any one writing Emacs Lisp whether or not they will be submitting that code to as a community package project.

The presentation will be followed by "Office Hours", where we can all get together and discuss, fix or hack on new or existing projects. If you have a little or big project or problem you'd like to solve, bring it, and pair up with someone who may have some experience in that area.

Hope to see you all there!

Note: We've started a PDX-oriented Emacs Slack group, pdx-emacs. Interested? Contact someone in the group to get an invitation.
