To anyone who hasn't tried it - http://www.vimgolf.com/ is probably the quickest and most fun way to take your skills to the next level.

I recommend the book "Practical Vim" too: https://pragprog.com/book/dnvim2/practical-vim-second-editio...

I remember learning a fair amount from it when I read it a few years ago (and should probably read through it again at some point).

Agreed, it's a great book. Drew Neil, the author also runs vimcasts.org for nice short single lesson videos.

https://vimvalley.com/ isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for.

wow good for them if they're getting people to pay $99. It does look well-designed, but the course outline seems a bit elementary. If anyone is thinking about buying this, you could probably just google the items in the course outline and try watching a youtube video on it.


The courseware runs entirely in the browser; gives great feedback; and helped me level up in a jiffy.

Such that I have no qualms mentioning it here.

yeah, increasing your skill is easily worth $100. Back when I was employed as a developer, I bought all kinds of educational stuff. Now that I'm working on startups, everything's gotta be free.

Is that why Vim costs so much? I kid but honestly I've found software quality to be poorly correlated with cost. Same for instructional materials.

I've never come across this before. Thanks for sharing!
