I heard from many sources that my productivity would increase if I used Vim as my text editor. I attempted to scale the steep learning cliff (not so much a curve...). One week I decided that I would learn by forcing myself to use vim all week. Since that week I've embraced my inner vim. In this talk I will go over the resources I used to learn vim and the basic cool operations that I love with vim. Topics will include basic text operations, vimrc, creating color schemes, and using vim plugins. If you ever wanted to give vim a shot but didn't know where to start, then you can start here.
