Last weekend we started the Development of Libre Software subject at MSWL where we’ll develop a GNOME (I hope that you hear more news about that during the next month).

The first class was just an introduction to the subject contents: GNOME, GTK+, GNOME Mobile and Maemo, Python, Mono, KDE, Qt, … In the second class we had a look to the common tools used in the free software world: a brief approach to the C programming language, Emacs, GDB and Valgrind.

As you can read we talked about Emacs and I’m a Vim user. I’ve already tried to start with Emacs some time ago with no success, but now I’m ready to give it another chance ;-)
In order to do that I’ve my own reference card that compares Emacs and Vim commands (this table should keep growing).
