If there is something which is slowing us down in vim, we can speed it up, for example by using a key map:

inoremap jk <esc> "this will map the combo jk to the pressure of the button esc

So the i means "insert mode" since this mapping will work in insert mode. The nore means non-recursive, notice that every map is non recursive, since recursive mappings nowadays with all these plugins existing, could cause problems.
