Vimfest 2016

Vimfest Berlin 2016 is the second community-driven Vim "Hackathon", happening the weekend of 16 – 18 September at Individual Network Berlin e.V. in Berlin, organized by the Vim Berlin user group and Vim enthusiasts from other cities.

We will spend the whole weekend on topics around the popular editor, such as: efficient ways of writing with Vim. Setting up .vimrc. Using plugins that rock, and writing plugins that rock. And also: other useful tools with vim keybindings, like mutt or newsbeuter. What ever you're interested in: Vimfest Berlin is an open space, everything is up to you!

So don't hesitate, and save the date: 16 – 18 September in Berlin: Be with us and join the very second Vimfest. Register now – try, learn and talk about the editor we all love.

Ain't enough? Wait, there's more.

Berlin is a great place that has a lot to offer. Once having many Vim lovers and interested people united at one place, we'll use the opportunity and, guided by our locals, go find some of the most interesting buffers of Berlin and celebrate Vim a bit at Saturday night.

Matthias Günther, Tim Quellmalz, and Sven Guckes
