This is a screencast full of tips for learning Vim. They range from introductory (how do I learn to use Vim effectively?) to specific questions I'm asked (what plugins do I use?) to advanced (how should I guide my use of plugins to maximize speed?), so there should be something for everyone. We also touch on color schemes a couple times: both my grb256 color scheme based on ir_black (available on GitHub) and Solarized, which is a more subtle choice.
