Tmux/Vim Workshop (Bring a Laptop!)
A terminal multiplexer and a decades old editor...wow...so what? I'll tell you so what! Have you ever wanted to build your own IDE that suits your development style but didn't have the skills or the time? Are you a polyglot seeking the power of an IDE, but there's simply no one tool that meets all of your needs? Look no further.
This workshop will show you how to utilize these two tools to create lightweight, yet rich development environments that are language, framework, and platform agnostic. Not only that, but we'll leverage the ability of both of these tools to keep your fingers "on the home row" of your keyboard while at the same time enabling you to quickly switch between multiple tasks and contexts, thus enhancing your overall productivity.
This session is a workshop. Please come prepared.
Before the workshop: Follow the instructions for installing VirtualBox and Vagrant found at: http://vagrantup.com/v1/docs/getting-started/index.html.
Be sure to go ahead and setup "Your First Vagrant Virtual Environment." This will ensure that you have a workable environment for the workshop.
It is important that you perform this setup prior to the workshop, as you will not have time during the session and will fall behind.
At the workshop: A Vagrant basebox with all of the necessary software will be provided during the workshop. It will have a minimal memory footprint, so a 4 GB laptop should be fine.
