Take home a text editor

  • Event: 2015 CAR Conference
  • Speaker: Elizabeth Lucas of Kaiser Health News
  • Date/Time: Sunday, Mar. 8 at 11:20am
  • Location: M109
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

At some point during the conference, in at least one hands-on session, you will probably use a text editor: Notepad++ or Sublime Text, for example. You might ask: What exactly is a text editor and why does everyone use them? In this session we’ll talk about why you should have a good text editor and what they can do for you that other programs (such as Word) can’t. We’ll talk about which ones are the best, and since most are free and easily to install, by the end of the session you will be ready (and eager) to take one home!
