      Vim lets me edit the Markdown content of the Hugo powered site with ease. The low bandwidth needs means I can remote in and get changes updated without issues.

      Our developers use Vim, which is great for remote pair programming. We even have a serverโ€”Bruizerโ€”set up to host shared terminal sessions.
