  • ⛳️ Vim Golf Night! 🏌
    It's Vim Golf night! We'll mob program through a few holes of Vim Golf together, and hopefully pick up a few new tricks. What's VimGolf? We'll work through some challenges on vimgolf.com. Here's how VimGolf works: sign in with Twitter, install the client with RubyGems, run the setup instructions, and input the ID of the challenge you'd like to try. Each challenge begins with a start file and an end file. The goal is to complete the required edits in the least amount of keystrokes. When you finish a challenge, your solution will be evaluated and your score will be calculated. You can then choose to submit your score to the leaderboard, or try again. Once you're on the leaderboard, you can see the solutions for the players who finished the challenge in a few keystrokes less than you did. Study their solutions, try again, and move up! Preparations If you have a laptop, bring it. Then: - Sign in with Twitter - Install the VimGolf CLI The course 18 holes: 1. VimGolfNight (http://vimgolf.com/challenges/521c805d860021000200007d) 2.

  • Going All In With NeoVim
    Join us for a talk about going 'all in' with NeoVim, featuring Hashrocket's Dorian Karter (https://twitter.com/dorian_escplan)! Talk Description --- NeoVim started as a crowd source campaign with a goal to "aggressively refactor Vim", essentially removing 20+ years of cruft and providing new features never before possible. NeoVim is now about 4 years old and comes packed with wonderful features! Come learn why I think NeoVim is the future on Vim, why after many back and forth I've decided to go all-in, and which tools and plugins make NeoVim a better choice for most people than Vim. ---- Vim Chicago Food and drinks are always provided!
