IBM Emacs Tutorial, Part I

April 2nd, 2007 by Ryan McGeary · 107 Comments

Michael Stutz recently wrote Part I of a new new series at IBM called Emacs editing environment. The first is Learn the basics of Emacs.

This first tutorial is definitely geared toward the emacs newcomer. There is a lot of overlap with the built-in emacs tutorial (C-h t), but different mediums are good for teaching different kinds of people. Also, reinforcement of the basics is good for a budding emacs hacker.

Note: IBM requires free registration to read the tutorial.

    I think it is always a good sign to see new tutorials. As you said, different people learn in different ways. Additionally, as someone who loves this editor it signifies to me that emacs is still relevant/healthy. I look forward to the rest of the series.
