Stephen Belcher - Fugitive
This plugin by Tim Pope integrates Git into Vim and brings the editor one step closer to an IDE, as you can take the power to manage, view, and update your repository without ever once leaving the editor to go back to your shell. This talk will walk through some of the many ways you can use Fugitive to improve your workflow. (Note: you may want to check out my slides from the recent DCBPW if you're not that familiar with git yet, as a primer for this talk)

Roan - Climbing amongst the lower limbs
A short introduction to the basics of NERDTree
Stephen Belcher - Vim Startup
If you've never played with Vim's startup flags, I don't blame you; the coolest stuff happens after you're inside Vim. But, there are some interesting ways Vim can be interacted with from the command line, and I'll explore a few of those in this talk.

Robert Weisser - Traditional Vi
Robert will take us through some of the origins of features in Vim that can be traced back to original Vi. While Vim adds some neat bells and whistles on top, many of the most impressive features were simply carried over from the original software that inspired it, and we're gonna learn how to use some.
