About this event

Girl Develop It Chicago is partnering with the folks at VimChi to host a beginner night just for GDI members! Vim is a free, open source text editor that makes use to keyboard commands and can be extensively customized to suit your preferences. Come and learn the basics of Vim and start learning pro tips to improve your workflow!

Is learning Vim worth the effort? We think so. With vim, you don't type, you take action.

This class is for people who have:

What we'll cover:

We'll cover the basics of Vim and have an open forum for questions big and small. Some areas we can work on:
