@hummingrain i was always under the impression that this can only happen through osmosis.
@hummingrain Friends don't let friends learn emacs.
@minego Do they make them learn vi?
@hummingrain YES! (I live in vi)
@hummingrain (Okay, learn what works for you... I can't help with emacs though.)
@hummingrain I like to recommend: https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/tour/index.html
I had been using Emacs for a few years before I found this text, and I still managed to learn some tricks and understood other concepts more clearly.

@hummingrain might help if you clarify what are you looking to do with emacs? programming? PIM with org-mode?
@dekkzz78 Learning to use org mode at all. Programming, definitely. Also some of the "Emacs as OS" stuff, so using it for e-mail, web browsing, etc, in a useful way.
for e-mail look gnus or mu4e
web browsing probably won't work for most sites otherwise eww
Emacs as OS then exwm
@hummingrain To add to what others have said, you might check out Mike Zamansky's series on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9KxKa8NpFxIcNQa9js7dQQIHc81b0-Xg. Some of it is more intermediate-level, but it'll give you an idea of what's possible. Also for org-mode there's the classic Google Tech Talk by org-mode's creator: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJTwQvgfgMM
