Latest VIM Conference
The last VIM conference was held at the Akiba Hall in Akiba Plaza, Tokyo, Japan on January 23, 2019.
Highlights of VIM Conference 2019:
1) Prabir Shrestha – Prabir is Senior Software Engineering Manager at Microsoft Flow. This year he discussed his work on asynchronous VIM plugins. His main contribution is the vim-lsp plugin which doesn’t make VIM “heavy”.
2) Justin M. Keyes – Justin is the lead maintainer of Neovim, the Vim-fork that reaches beyond the terminal. His expertise is in business systems and embedded devices. He is a plugin author and VIM contibutor. He recently contributed to a Seattle mega-corp and a Berlin startup.
1) vim-lsp – Using “Language Server Protocol“, this plugin for Vim/Neovim enables text editors to have an ease of use to code formatting and auto-complete.
2) Neovim – Neovim is a hyperextensible Vim-based text editor with 30% less source code than VIM. It allows for the ability to enable new applications but doesn’t compromise the originality of VIM.
