New for 2010

We'll be in Meeting Room A this time: the big room at the front. I'm planning to briefly recap my "Vi old-school" presentation from December (the original inter-holiday audience of 3 seemed to like it) and twist some arms to get others to talk about how they use Vi(m) and maybe present details of their configuration. And web designers: this one isn't just for PHP or code junkies. Like many of us, I first started using Vi extensively for html and never went back. And it's already installed on your Mac or Ubuntu box, so maybe it's time to try it again, or for the first time.

    Good discussion! I guess people can get passionate about their tools! For people who've never seen Vi live, I agree a demo would have contributed to the discussion. I did a quick ad-hoc demo for a very small group in December, and pointed to some tutorials on Google for this presentation, but now, by popular demand, I'll have to work up another demo myself and post it.

    The conversation, including the arguing was interesting as was the history that lead to 'vi' but I didn't come away feeling I had truly seen a fair representation of what vi was for or when/how to make use of it. I certainly felt I got a taste for it and perhaps the links in the presentation will do more.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
