I'm planning a 20-30 minute talk for next month on being productive in the terminal. This won't be directly about Ruby, although there will be a few Ruby tricks in there, and it will certainly be helpful to Ruby developers.
I don't want to bore people with stuff they already know about, though. Can y'all look this list over and let me know if anything looks too basic or irrelevant? Also, have a look at https://github.com/jaymcgavren/dotfiles, and if there's anything there you'd like to see explained in this talk, let me know!
