> A new website containing introductory videos and slide decks is now
> available

> introductions to the excellent Emacs Speaks Statistics (ESS) mode for the
> Emacs editor.
> This effort started following my little tips, tricks, tools and toys series
> of short videos and slide decks “for the command-line and R,
> broadly-speaking”. Which I had mentioned to friends curious about Emacs,
> and
> on the ess-help mailing list. And lo and behold, over the fall and winter
> sixteen of us came together in one GitHub org and are now proud to present
> the initial batch of videos about first steps, installing, using with
> spaceemacs, customizing, and org-mode with ESS. More may hopefully fellow,
> the group is open and you too can join: see the main repo and its wiki.
> This is in fact the initial announcement post, so it is flattering that we
> have already received over 350 views, four comments and twenty-one likes.
> We hope it proves to be a useful starting point for some of you. The Emacs
> editor is quite uniquely powerful, and coupled with ESS makes for a rather
> nice environment for programming with data, or analysing, visualising,
> exploring, … data. But we are not zealots: there are many editors and
> environments under the sun, and most people are perfectly happy with their
> choice, which is wonderful. We also like ours, and sometimes someone asks
> ‘tell me more’ or ‘how do I start’. We hope this series satisifies this
> initial curiousity and takes it from here.
> With that, my thanks to Frédéric, Alex, Tyler and Greg for the initial
> batch,
> and for everybody else in the org who chipped in with comments and
> suggestion. We hope it grows from here, so happy Emacsing with R from us!
> For the group,  Dirk
