I've been thru almost the same path as you, I've used Sublime Text/Atom for a while, and tried VSCode.

They all seemed pretty much the same.. boring.. and very slow when dealing with large codebases, or with multiple files, or with linters and stuff turned on!

After switching to Vim I realized how it's awesome, the learning proccess is what makes me more excited to use it and I never get bored of it. There's always new tricks, you can program scripts to better your workflow... It's more than my text editor of choice, it's my videogame 😂.

After using Vim for a while, I decided to write quick tips and tutorials for Vim beginners, to help them deal with specific configs and get excited with tricks you can use.
