Beginners Meetup

After a bit of a break, it's time for Boston Vim to kick back into gear. This month we will be hosting a beginner-focused meetup. As always, anyone is welcome, but it will be especially useful to those who are newer to Vim.

We will start with a quick overview of Vim, then from there open things up to the questions / topics of interest to the group. We will have a handful of us from thoughtbot there to answer questions and help out as needed.

Sample topics:

- Work through Vim Tutor
- Setup your vimrc
- Setup Vundle for plugin management
- Put vimfiles in git / on github

Everyone is encouraged to bring their computer to work on their own Vim setup, but we can pair you up if that is not an option.

Pizza and beer will be provided thanks to thoughtbot. Food arrives at 7:00pm, meetup proper at 7:30pm.

    Hey guys,
    If you want more vim help, check out the #vim channel on You can log in via or use a client like irssi or x-chat 2.
    Here's a primer

    In the channel, you might even meet vim celebrities like tpope or the guy who wrote Vundle.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
