VIM is Sydney Rails Devs’ Favourite Editor

Outstanding news! As part of the rails refactor talk at RORO (Sydney Rails Group) tonight (great evening by the way!), I asked for a show of hands on people’s favoured editors. I was amazed to discover the vim has edged out TextMate with just over half of the people at the group using it as their editor of choice! As an aside, Netbeans had one supporter, RubyMine and Emacs had zero. The groundswell of support for vim (and the cheering) was impressive!

PS – this is a very nerdy post, but as a long time vim fan, I had to report on it 🙂

Short Talk on rails_refactor at Rails group

I’ll be giving a short talk with Ryan Bigg on Rails Refactor at the next Sydney Rails Group (RORO) meet (Tuesday, Feb 8 from 7pm) . We’ll be talking about Rails Refactor’s birth at a hack night last year, what it can do for you right now, and its bright future as your refactoring tool of choice. Hope to see you there.
