Tutorial screencasts for Emacs

Topics for the First Section

| Comments

These are the topics I’m planning to cover in the first section. I’m posting this up to solicit feedback on content as well as order

  1. Registers and bookmarks
  2. A bunch of minor modes (auto-fill, flyspell etc.)
  3. Basic customisation (probably a multi part episode)
    • Very basic elisp.
    • Simple settings like colours, font size etc.
    • Minor modes
    • Mode hooks
    • Key bindings
    • The customize system
    • Organising your .emacs file.
  4. Keyboard macros

I think this should cover it. I might make changes based on how the episodes turn out but this sounds like a decent starting point.

The other three sections will cover applications like dired etc., programming modes and utilities and finally, elisp. I’ll worry about those when I get there.

This is a call for feedback so please let me know.
