Do you want to process words or edit text?

I use vim for more than 12 years, most of the time as my primary editor for text and code. This post is a summary of a short master class for Donetsk Coffee’n’code meeting in December 2013. More experienced vim users should probably go directly to the end to check collection of links.

In April-June 2013, as part of learnpython.dn.ua initiative, I gave 10 master classes about web development with Django. This blog post starts a series of 10 blog posts with lecture notes from that course.

During the course we have built a photoplanet, an aggregator that allows to show most interesting photos from Instagram based on a hashtag. The source code and instruction for making it run on Heroku are available on Github. Follow these blog posts to see how to built such an app from scratch.
