Configuring a Vim Session

Vim provides a number of window management options, so you can view multiple files in split panes, across tabs, or organized in a combination of the two. In this lab, you'll take an existing Node.js project and generate a Vim session for it, so that all files open in the desired manner when the session is restored.
