MIT’s SIPB IAP activities page is a treasure trove of interesting stuff. Among the many classes programmed for 2007, there’s one that i’m sure will be interesting to many mew readers: Being Productive With Emacs. The good news is that you don’t need to travel to Boston to get this excellent illustrated introduction to Emacs, continued with a customization and an extension guide. Being the slides of three presentations (by Phil Sung), they’re sketchy at places, but make for a great introduction to Emacsland nonetheless, and there’s a trick or two for seasoned users as well. Recommended.
