2 minute read Published:

It was at the JSDayES conference at Madrid where substack (James Halliday) coded on the stage of the big auditorium. The lines and words were changing quicker than I was used to. He wasn’t editing code character-by-character. Whole statements, lines, and blocks were moving around. Editing code like that looked magical to me. We weren’t watching a recording. It was Vim that was the secret sauce. How does one become a Vim wizard without being intimidated by the superpowers?
