We'll break out of Vim again this month, and take a look at another text editor: Readline! The line editor behind Bash, IRB, and other popular tools has vi and emacs modes, and a huge range of powerful features.

After an introduction to Readline, we'll open the floor again for lightning talks. Maybe you're an enthusiastic Readline user too and you want to show off your .inputrc, or maybe you're sick of this other editor and want to get back to vim. Either way, if there's something you want to talk about the floor is yours.

Finally, Teo will show us how to use Git without ever leaving Vim by introducing Tim Pope's fugitive.vim plugin.

(If you'd like to give a longer talk in future, just let me know)

As usual, we'll have food and beer from 18:30 and start the talks at 19:00. Sponsored by thoughtbot (
