Wizards Use Vim
Wizards Use Vim is a delightful and fun introduction to the the amazing Vim text editor.
The book is at a very early stage and is an incomplete collection of rough drafts at this point. You can still join in early, get the book at a discount, experience how a book gets written, impact its development through feedback and admire how it slowly transforms from garbage to a beautiful emerald.
I'll expand on this as I continue writing the book :D
Boost Your Coding Fu With VSCode and Vim
Visual Studio Code is superb. It offers an unparalleled user experience with great support for many languages and development ecosystems. It comes with great defaults and is super easy to use and to get started with.
Vim is awesome. It's modal nature and text editing features make it unique amongst other editors. Vim offers a complete different level of text editing proficiency, speed and accuracy from anything else out there.
The combination of both couldn't be anything less that amazingly superbsome (yep, I just did that).
In the upcoming days, and as you read these pages and practice, you will boost your Visual Studio editing skills incredibly. You'll become better by bringing in lots of useful tools from the Vim editor right inside the comfort of your favorite editor: Visual Studio Code.
