If you have used vim for very long, you have almost certainly made some modifications to your .vimrc file - this is the file that stores configurations for how vim does things like tabs, syntax highlighting, etc.
If you use more than one computer, I highly recommend keeping your .vimrc file on the cloud. It's incredibly simple, and provides for a consistent experience across computers.
Eight years ago, I left my job as a product manager and decided that I wanted to go back to school. During the next six months, I taught myself some basic Python and learned as much as a I could about Master’s degree programs studying “the Internet”. I was fortunate enough to learn about and be accepted into the Media, Technology, and Society program at Purdue, where I took my first courses in Communication (while simultaneously teaching my first courses in Communication!). I had an incredible advisor in Seungyoon Lee, and wonderful mentors like Sorin Matei, Lorraine Kisselburgh, and Torsten Reimer.
