Being able to quickly and accurately move to where you need to be in Vim is an important skill, and one that only takes a little practice before you'll be zooming to right where you need to be! In this hands-on lab, we will start with the basics of moving around in a buffer or file's contents, getting to top/bottom, directly to a given line, or move around in large movements such as by screen or buffer. We'll then move around by paragraph, on a line, and even down to moving around word by word, both forward and backward for all movements.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
