July 16th Meeting: Vim: the why and how

Date: Tuesday, July 16th, 2013
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: UVU Business Resource Center

Vim continues to be an incredibly popular editor despite a seemingly
arcane interface. To appreciate why requires an explanation of a short
philosophy and a basic orientation. This talk will cover how to think
about Vim and how to get started. It is aimed at beginners and
intermediate users; advanced users are encouraged to chime in with
tips and personal experiences.

Seth is a fourteen year veteran of daily Vim use. He enjoys tweaking
every available knob and dial for a truly personalized editing
environment.
