This session was not filmed.
Spacemacs is a community configuration that makes it simple to use Emacs for Clojure development (and pretty much anything else you can think of).
Spacemacs unleashes the powerful experience of Vim style multi-modal editing, making you more productive and reducing RSI by avoiding keyboard combos. This session will help you think in the language of Vim and use it for creating, editing and refactoring your code very quickly.
We will quickly go through the vim basics and help you understand how to speak Evil https://practicalli.github.io/spacemacs/spacemacs-basics/speaking-vim.html
Also cover powerful tools like iedit, narrowing and helm to help you refactor your code in lots of different ways.
Before the session
Please have Spacemacs installed with Evil as the default and preferably helm (there are only a few helm specific things)
