In my Emacs video tutorial I’ll cover installation on Windows and MacOS. Then we’ll cover what you’d learn in a standard 300 page book. We’ll cover how to move around, editing, repeating commands, regions, searching, buffers, frames, shells, macros and then I’ll cover how to setup a programming environment using Clojure as an example.

"Quantum Computing for Computer Scientists" popped up as a recommended video. Not sure if this means YouTubes algorithms are way off, or exactly on point, as this certainly seems like a complex editor. Looks useful though. Thanks for the tutorial!

Yes I love Emacs, but it takes a while to get used to. I'm not sure what it has to do with quantum computing

Suggestion: time markers for each major section of the video.

I never understood why emacs seems to have such a Mac OS userbase. It seems an editor designed more tailored for a BSD or Linux TTY, but every single video I find in youtube is using Mac to code on it.

That's probably because MacOS is basically just Linux

It would be nice, if all shortcuts you are typing also printed to screen.

Thank you Derek, your tutorials are so reduced to the essentials. I always wanted sth like this! They save a lot of time! Thank you very much! I did the common lisp and the emacs tutorial and will attack the clojure tutorial. Thanks to this/your tutorial I think I will use emacs more often! (after so many unfruitful attempts). Thank you for your time and effort you put into your tutorials!
