On this week's episode, Chris and Steph discuss identifying refactoring opportunities by highlighting overly coupled code and Chris announces that he has advanced his vim setup into the 21st century by making the switch to Neovim.

They also respond to a timely question from a listener who's thinking about learning vim, which raises the important question: is vim still relevant? And if so, how does one get started? Rounding out the conversation, they discuss treating the database as a product's first (or last) line of defense.
