Getting Started With Org Mode

Thom Obarski

From the March 2016 Boston Emacs Meetup, Harry Schwartz demonstrates some of the nifty features of Org mode:

Org mode is an outliner, markup language, task manager, calendar, contact manager, and who-knows-what-else. I use it to write documents and presentations, manage my todo list, and I even write my Emacs configuration in it.

In other words, Org is taking over my life.

I’ll be introducing some of the functionality of Org, demonstrating what it can do, and showing how you, too, can become pleasantly obsessed with a wacky, overgrown outlining tool.
