I am trying to really learn how to use GNU Emacs. One thing that strikes me is how the Emacs user interface can be thought of as a client application to an Emacs Lisp API. This is not a revolutionary thought, but it really stuck in my head. I reread the official tutorial, focusing on the functions rather than the keybindings that invoke them.
The first function is obviously the one to get the tutorial started.

Then I spent a couple days with liberal usage of ~describe-key~ and ~describe-function~ to better understand what the tutorial was describing. It was helpful. Now I just want to organize those notes and post them on the blog.
Or I could dump the list onto a blog post.
