I hesitate to say this, out of fear of starting a religious war
involving napalm... But here goes...
I'd also love to see a session dealing with editors and the tricks they
pose. I know that every time I do something in vim, if it wasn't done
with 1 key stroke it could probably have been more efficient. Being an
efficiency nut, I love to find new tips and tricks that make me faster
in the program I find myself in 80% of the day. Now of course, not
everyone uses the same editor (hence the fear of requiring asbestos). I
suspect that at least some effort should need to be made to cover tips
and tricks for a range of editors.
Perhaps in attempting to fill an evening, both the editor and shell
topics would make for a good double topic? I for one also think the
shell topic would be great, and I don't necessarily want to detract from
it, just tossing out another idea that I think may be of interest.
