Vim is a classic text editor that saw its first incarnation in 1976. Used around the world across most platforms, the ability to drop into a computer, open a command prompt and type vim is a simple yet powerful concept.

In this course we will take a tour of Vim, and learn the essentials you need to know to start being productive with this powerful text editor. We will learn about basic movement through a file in Vim without a mouse, loading and saving files, commanding the Vim editor, and get started customizing Vim to suit your needs.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    The course is amazing and you have been done a very good job in it, I was expecting more functionality/nice tricks to be explained, more good-to-have/know vim plugins and so on.

    What was your strongest take away from this course?

    not much workable info to use; the only workable video is with that of vim movement commands. if you dont know vim, the videos on command combos will surely be a headscratcher

    I don't feel like i learned enough to be comfortable using vim, but great introduction to some of the most frequently used shortcuts in vim. Setting up a config file, for each work environment is definitely something i am looking forward to try out!
