Interested in learning eLisp for Emacs, ever thought you should?
 
I wanted to learn eLisp but there are no decent beginners' book - so I decided to write one - and by decent I mean super-basic starting assuming you know nothing at all.
 
It is my 'official' side-project; something to work on when I am bored or blocked in my main work.
 
You can see how much progress I have made here:
http://learn-elisp-for-emacs.org/
 
The book will get written quicker if other people muck in.
 
If you are a programmer with NO EXPERIENCE of Lisp:
* EITHER download the book, do the lessons and give me feedback
* OR (better!) checkout the git repository, do the lessons and START WRITING NEW ONES
 
If you are an experienced Lisp/eLisp programmer:
* read the book, do the lessons and point out egregious errors, misconceptions, poor style and the many other failings it has
 
I have set up a mailing list:
