  VimConf 2020 online

[2020-09-11] Since the normal VimConf was cancelled because of the pandemic, others organised an online version. This happened in the weekend of September 5.

  old but still useful videos

[2020-07-10] Not much news has appeared here for a while, so let's dig up some old stuff! The talk about Vim's 25th birthday can be found here. It gives a nice overview of how Vim became what it is now. A much older talk, but about stuff that never gets old is 7 Habits For Effective Text Editing. Anybody who spends more than an hour a day editing text should watch it. I recently discovered a University lecture about Vim here. It's amazing how many Vim tutorials can be found on Youtube.
