Editing with vi: Fundamentals, Part 2

A session at LinuxCon North America 2012

Friday 31st August, 2012

11:55am to 12:40pm (PST)

Most people use about 10% of vi's capabilities. Learn the other 90% and increase your speed and enjoyment in text editing. The course covers the history, background and design principles of vi; ALL the vi movement commands; many text alteration commands; and the vi command language syntax. Attendees must bring a laptop with "vi" on it for in-class exercises. No prior experience is required, but 20 year veterans of vi have come out raving how much they learned. vi is the usual editor on Linux systems, and you can save a lot of time by learning to use more of its core features. Student successes: "Aleksey is a dynamic presenter. His engaging style encouraged questions and comments. He was effective in managing time, addressing questions in the order they were asked, and answering every question."
