Vim - the modern IDE

On Thursday, May 22, Olaf and Andreas were invited to give a talk about VIM and how easy it is to work with it. At the beginning, Olaf showed us basic commands like :wq and dd, which should be known by every VIM user. After that he gave us an introduction to a more sophisticated way of using VIM, in order to edit text faster and more efficiently, for example with macros. In the second part of the talk Andreas showed us how VIM plugins can transform the editor into a modern and usable IDE. Some examples are vundle, a plugin which manages other VIM plugins, and the autocompletion engine YouCompleteMe.
