As programmers we spend a large portion of our time simply editing text. Since we have the skill and experience to learn programming languages, why not also spend the time to learn a text editing language? After all, that is essentially what Vim is. Vim is a language for editing text.

This talk is aimed at people who have never heard of vim, as well people who may have tried it but didn’t see the productivity boost they were hoping for. By the end of the talk, you will see vim as not just a text editor with efficient hotkeys, but rather a language of composable commands to edit text like a programmer.
