Vim is a command-line text editor and I want to be honest. It is hard to learn. If you try to apply the principle of UI/UX, vim will fail every checklist. It is not friendly. BUT as people say practice makes perfect, with good practice you can learn it over time. And your productivity might get 2x faster.

These technologies will see significant innovation and growth in 2021.

A DynamoDB stream is an ordered flow of information about changes to items in a DynamoDB table. When you enable a…
