Org mode is an extremely powerful emacs package. It is a great tool for:

  • organizing ideas and drafting plans
  • writing text for export to latex, pdf, html and many other formats
  • writing text with embedded code for literate programming (much more powerful that RMarkdown)
  • writing papers or your thesis
  • making beamer presentations
  • ...

If you have never used emacs before, come to our Introduction to emacs workshop before coming to make sure you already have an understanding of emacs.
