Intro to Vim Workshop

Friday April 7 1:00PM - 2:00PM in Drum Lab, K17 Building

Vim is a text editor for writing and editing code. It can run in a terminal, over ssh or as it's own app. But what's the big deal? Well, Vim is quite powerful, and mastering it will allow you to write code much faster.

However, Vim has quite a steep learning curve if you wish to utilise its full power - that's where this workshop comes in! From absolute beginner to Vim expert, this workshop has it all.

Even if you are set on using another editor like Sublime, Eclipse (or dare I say, Emacs)- you can still benefit from the power of Vim, and use the modal editing paradigm to gain superpowers in your editor of choice!

This workshop will be happening on Friday, 7th of April, Location is K17 Drum Lab.

Boost your productivity -- Come along, and learn to edit text at the speed of thought!

PS. If you want to come extra prepared, type 'vimtutor' at the terminal.

Please note - all members of your team must register individually at fbsydhack17.splashthat.com for the opportunity to attend by April 7th at 9am UTC +10

Join Facebook in Sydney as we stay up all night hacking, learning and having a some fun! Start brainstorming ideas & forming teams (of up to 4 people). We'll supply the food, fun diversions, prizes, and some expert guidance in the form of our engineers. You bring your laptop, appetite, skills and ideas.
