Dan has been writing software for 13 years and has worked in many languages and created a few open source projects, the most popular being the Android podcast player Podax.
If you've ever tried to edit something in a shell, you've probably used vim (or vi). Vim is a text editor written that was first released publicly in 1991. Based on the vi editor common to Unix-like systems, Vim is designed for use both from a command line interface and as a standalone application in a graphical user interface. It's a handy tool available on almost every system. Some event use it full time and exclusively for crafting code.
We'll cover how to learn it, how powerful it can be, some of the more popular plugins, and most importantly: how to quit.
