Vim is a powerful tool for efficient text editing. It takes a slightly different approach than other common editors, allowing the author to focus on the changes rather than how to make them. In this talk you will learn basic controls and get an idea of the benefits using Vim. The Goals of this talk are to provide an entry point to become familiar with Vim, teach easy to use basic movements and controls, and to show useful methods like automation that can save time in everyday tasks. Even if you do not plan to make Vim your default text editor you will learn some tricks where this tool might come in handy. The presentation is split into three sections: A brief overview on basic commands and modes, a practical introduction on how to manipulate text efficiently with Vim, and we will have a look on everyday tasks and how to solve them with ease. about this event: https://pretalx.linuxtage.at//glt22/talk/YCJEYP/
