From scratch to MELPA in 14 years and 12 hours - Getting your ELisp on MELPA is simple and you can do it, too.

Stefan - @stka23 - Kamphausen

On top of that we are celebrating our third birthday as a meetup! There will be some tasty cake 🎂 and some tasty talks.

Once the scheduled talks are over it’s open mic! Did you discover a new package, learned something about Elisp, or just used Emacs for developing a cool project, then we want to hear about it!

We’ve had some great impromptu lightning talks, and we definitely want to see more of those. Emacs Berlin is a friendly and inclusive community. If you have anything to share then we want to hear your voice!

Beginner’s Guarantee

If you would like a basic introduction to Emacs, or you’re starting out and have some questions, then we are more than happy to help you. Just show up to a meeting, and we guarantee there will be somebody to help you up to speed.


Talks are 20 minutes + 5 min Q&A, and should be loosely related to Emacs. Lightning talks are 5 minutes + 5 minutes Q&A, and can be about anything. The only “rule” for lightning talks is “keep it short, keep it interesting”.

At the moment the best place to propose talks is on the mailing list.
