Workshop Details

Have you ever accidentally opened vim? The first time is disorienting and confusing, and what is more perplexing is that people intentionally do it every day. This workshop will demystify VIM and allow you to be more effective.

Is This Workshop for Me?


I remember when I was younger seeing someone who flew so fast while developing that I felt embarrassed about my skills and a deep desire to be that good. This course is for anyone who has been in the same situation and to give you the tools to be on the other side.

Any Prerequisites?

  • Unix system. I have virtually no experience on Windows. So windows environment issues I will be unable to help you
  • Rejection of complacency
  • A desire to improve as a developer
