Emacs Movies

How did I miss this? Noufal Ibrahim is producing a series of videos on using Emacs. The plan calls for four sections:

  1. Basics
  2. Applicaations
  3. Programming
  4. Elisp

So far, he finished Section 1 with a total of 10 videos. To give you an idea of what he's covering, here's a list of the videos in Section 1:

  1. Terminology
  2. Navigation
  3. Editing
  4. The Region
  5. Buffers
  6. Registers and Bookmarks
  7. Minor Modes
  8. Customisation: Part 1
  9. Customisation: Part 2
  10. Keyboard Macros

I've watched 1–6 and 10 so far and have been impressed. Ibrahim covered many of the Emacs tricks that I've posted about in this blog and a couple of things I didn't know. The longest video I've watched was #4 and that was about 20 minutes. The others are shorter so it's easy to do one or two a day when you need a short break. They're well done so it's worth the time. Ibrahim is also producing a book to go along with the videos but he gave up trying to keep them in sync so the book is lagging behind the videos.

I've enjoyed the videos and learned a couple of new things so you should go on over and take a look.
