Who am I?


I am Fabrice Niessen, a computer consultant and avid Emacs user for over 24 years. I am an active contributor within the Emacs community, and my journey is marked by various achievements, particularly in enhancing Org mode, a major Emacs extension dedicated to task management, note-taking, and project organization. Through my contributions, I have successfully attracted more users to Emacs and Org mode by adding themes for HTML exports.

As a IT professional, I am passionate about teaching Emacs, and I regularly speak at prestigious conferences such as FOSDEM in Brussels or the LaTeX workshops in Dunkirk, where I have the opportunity to share my knowledge. My presentations primarily highlight the use of Emacs and Org mode for scientific writing, project management, and knowledge organization.

I take great pleasure in contributing to the improvement and expansion of these tools, which are used by many developers, researchers, and writers around the world.

You can find my projects and contributions on my GitHub repositories.

Participant testimonials

« A very cool training. Despite using Emacs daily for over 20 years, I learned plenty of new things. Fabrice helped me catch up by presenting the most useful modern packages and sharing all the useful tricks that I had neglected to explore or configure efficiently.
Just as I recommend Emacs to anyone looking to work with text effectively and sustainably, I recommend Fabrice’s training to anyone planning to use Emacs several times a week.
And the 16 hours of training will quickly pay off. Just yesterday, C-x d Q saved me a good 2 hours, I think. »
– Marc Boyer, ONERA Research Director

« Thank you for this great training. Even though I was a daily Emacs user, I learned a lot, and I should quickly improve my productivity thanks to these new packages and keyboard shortcuts. »
– Benoît Bergk Pinto, CNRS Bioinformatician

« I discovered Emacs during this training, and I was impressed by the flexibility of this editor: you can literally edit anything, including our file structure. It saved me a lot of time! Fabrice is very pedagogical and remains available to help us even after the training, which is highly appreciated. Thank you! »
– Marthe Bideault, Ph.D. student

« If you ever thought you wanted to follow a course on Emacs, Fabrice is your guy. He is well known and respected in our niche community. After presenting his workshop in Paris he is now on his way to Rotterdam for a NL workshop. Kudos to you Fabrice! »
