i got a lot of feedback regarding the ucw movie i made the other day. some of it was ucw related but a lot of it was related to how i used slime and develped lisp code. instead of getting real work done, or going to the park, i made an intro video/showcase for slime. it was supposed to be about 20mins but when i was done i realized i'd talked for almost an hour :). it covers (more or less deeply):
- installing and setting up slime (remotely)
- the repl (output recording and shortcuts)
- sldb (locals, inspect-frame and frame-source)
- the inspector
- hyperspec lookup
- emacs commands for editing lisp code
- fuzzy-completion and slime-autodoc
i think that's it (i'm not about to watch it again to make sure...)
update Luke Gorrie, one of the primary SLIME developers, watched the movie and commented "Totally brilliant!!"
I also came across another slime movie, this time done in Flash and viewable in a browser. It's a short and sweet run-through of some typical SLIME interaction.
