It was Evren who triggered the idea of using Tetris as the task for the next JSCodeRetreat. And I have to say it was a good idea, it was a bit more challenging than the Game of Life and left more room for discussions and also allowed to explore more (software) design challenges.
In preparation for my last post Mikado Method to install a Vim Plugin I just had to read one of the good articles about the Mikado Method again. And when something really grabs my attention and I think there are relevant things in such an article (or video) I usually tweet the things I find most essential. So here is a collection of (some of) the things I find most relevant in that article.
I just wanted to install a github-flavored markdown plugin for vim. Until today I only used vim as it falls out of the box. So I had to do a couple detours before I got a vim plugin installed.

In this case I used a very simple form of it, actually mainly to document all the steps I had to take on this detour. Read more below.
