    Why do you have your secure shell in a browser?

    I use vim for over 2 year and I still don't have a good idea how to efficiently move vertically . I usually use j,k or shift [ ]

    Good tutorial. But why do you have to mention the fact the you are a girl lmao. You think you're so unique and quirky?

    audio is horrible, leson is slow, dialog is clumbsy, quote in the beginning is offinsive. HOW did you get 939k subs???????

    i spent a year internalising all pycharm shortcuts + mastering VIM, then using pycharm's vim plugin. I practiced for hours in the lounge room with the keyboard unplugged, just memorizing the shortcuts and ingraining them into muscle memory. When I emerged from the basement I was god-mode productive for 2 months – I could do stupid things like build an app in 30 minutes by button mashing. I had finally made it. A master.. of VIM. I felt like Po when he became the dragon warrior… I felt like Ash ketchum winning all gym battles after all 932 pokemon episodes. It was beautiful. then I got RSI and had to take 6 months off

    Still a beginner but can you use this for any language or is it specific?

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. I'm new in Linux (about 1 year using it) and I think it's a good time to, at least, have a basic idea of how to use vim.
    Of course I didn't get all the shortcuts memorized, but I'll keep trying to get them in my "hard drive".
    You've done an aweosme job. Again, thank you so much.

    Hey, great video. after watching this I think I'm going to give vim a try. I've been using Jupyter mostly up to now. question for you. how do you restart the python kernel if needed when using vim? I have had occasion to need to do that as I'm still at the beginning of my coding journey.
