Vim Training curriculum is now public !

Nishant Dania @nishantdania

Vim is a great tool which I have been using for the past few years. Combined with Tmux, it improved my workflow quite a lot. A few months ago some of my colleagues wanted to shift to Vim from VSCode and I started pairing with them and discussing tips around Vim. I learnt a lot during this process and read a lot about Vim through books and online blogs.

I felt there should be a more structured course for Vim, which followed the help docs of Vim and goes beyond the basic courses out there. So I started building the curriculum I wanted to serve and built a massive Whimsical map of all the commands and topics I wanted to cover.

I am now releasing the curriculum at to the public to get more feedback on the course structure before a general public launch. The course would be a paid one and for all the people subscribing to the email list now, I'll send a discount code during the launch week.

I hope more people can see the value Vim provides by learning it with a workflow based approach instead of learning just the commands that Vim provides.

Head over to and subscribe to receive the discount code once the course is launched. I might pick a few users and do a private beta run of the course before launch.
