Design, develop, and deploy end-to-end applications with Vim

The text editor is the programmer’s “hammer and nail”, but what makes a programmer’s text editor the best tool for the job? Can you be sure you are approaching tasks in the most efficient and fun way until you have tried to understand what makes the Vim Editor one of the most popular and longest-standing text editing tools of all time? There’s a reason why every text editor made since its inception has Vim plugins.

In this concise course, which can be viewed in under an hour, we will start with the basics and move on to mastering the fundamentals of Vim, providing you with the perfect solid foundation to edit and search text with the fewest keystrokes imaginable. Exploiting Vim’s strengths in this way makes it a frictionless tool that works for you instead of you working for it.

By the end of this course, you will be sufficiently confident to make Vim (or its fork, Neovim) your first choice when writing applications in any programming languages.
