Event Description

Intro to the VIM Editor

Tired of those elitist VIM-using friends teasing you? Or just wondering what all the fuss is about?  Or perhaps you’ve tried to use it once but it was way too complicated for you? Let a reluctant VIM user introduce you to the world of one of the most popular editor for serious programmers.  We’ll start off with the basics of the textmode editor, explain why basic VIM skills are essential to budding hackers, and why you’ll be exponentially more productive using VIM over your current tool.  You’ll leave this presentation with basic VIM skills and some resources on how to continue leveling up.

About Presenter

Shu Zong Chen is a full time pythonista and freelance designer, who used to live day to day in nano.  He actually dislikes VIM, but begrudgingly uses it because out of all the editors available he is by far the MOST productive in VIM.  This fact makes him the best person to introduce VIM to the person that is having trouble getting pass the initial VIM barrier.
