This meetup was created to give vimmers a place in New York to congregate. It is a place where beginners can learn the art of vim and where experts can sharpen their skills and learn about new tools. This meetup is open to all current and aspiring vim users who want to talk motions, macros, and mappings.
It is also open to anyone and everyone. Feel free to stop by for a slice of pizza and beer. Discussions about other types of editors or any programming related topics are welcomed!
We are always looking for speakers. Feel free to contact us at any time!
Share or discover tips and tricks in bite-sized lightning talks!
A "lightning talk" is a short presentation, under 5 minutes, that covers one idea clearly. This may be done with or without slides.
If you are interested in giving a talk, or simply have a topic to propose, please fill out this form:
NOTE: any topic that is directly related to something in Vim 8 or Neovim is considered fair play. If it's a feature, plugin, or use-case for either editor, the topic will probably work for us!
After the lightning talks, we'll split up into small groups of 2-3 to help each other debug vimrc's, share informal tips, and get to know each other!
* Introduction: 5-10 minutes
* Lightning talks: as many as we can handle
* Informal mingling: the remaining time
Tentative Lightning Talks (unordered and subject to grow):
* Mike Dillion: tbd
* Pete Doherty: Termdebug
* Robert O'Connor: tbd
* Sam Roeca: Using Vim as your Man pager
If you're looking for something to present, pick from below:
* Async IO/Jobs
* Native Package/Plugin Management
* Functional VimScript: Lambdas, closures, partials, etc.
* Anything else Vim-related
Special thanks, once again, to our friends at Def Method for hosting! Because of their generosity, some non-alcoholic beverages and light snacks will be served.
