We just released a new course on Upcase, and we’re pretty excited. It’s called Onramp to Vim, and we think it’s the best thing out there for turning yourself into a solid Vim user.
The course was produced by Chris Toomey and me (Ben Orenstein). Together, we have thousands of hours of Vim experience, and have successfully converted many friends, co-workers, and internet strangers into happy and efficient Vimmers. We’ve distilled our best stuff into this course. Even if you’re a seasoned Vim veteran you’re likely to pick up a few tips.
Here’s some of what we cover:
