  • Master Emacs in One Year ** English version Guide on how to master Emacs in one year.

The critical question is whether one year is enough.

My answer is a big YES, if you know how to do it efficiently!

Here are the tips for your first year: - Set the standard to the highest - DON'T create your own setup - Report bugs to the master - DON'T learn Lisp - DON'T remember key bindings

Emacs Lisp has nothing to do with your IQ. So don't feel pressured to master it asap. As I have observed, most people (including me) dislike language with unfamiliar syntax. That's ok. Start from using Emacs, you will feel the love for Emacs, then comes the love for Lisp naturally.
