Did you know that the most productive command line experts exploit the powerful features of the Emacs text editor?

The problem is that if you want to get really good with Emacs it can take you an extremely long time if you’re trying to learn it on your own.

That’s why this Emacs course was created.

This course gives you the absolute shortest path to learning the basics. It also provides you the fastest way to learn advanced features.

By the time you finish the Emacs course you’ll know how to:

  • Work with multiple files
  • The must-know keyboard shortcuts
  • Find and replace
  • Copy and paste
  • Visually select blocks of text
  • Create, save, and replay macros 
  • Use multiple cursors
  • Navigate quickly

When you start the course, you’ll be able to use Emacs almost immediately.  I want to make sure you get up and running as quickly as possible.  That’s why at the beginning of the course you’ll learn how to start Emacs, how to make simple edits, and how to save your changes.

After that, we’ll unleash the power of Emacs with windows, multiple cursors, file navigation all through step-by-step instruction.
