Let's Talk Keyboards! (The typing kind)

by Alex Ives | at MinneBar 12

I suspect that for many of us at minnebar, the keyboard is one of the primary tools of trade. Personally as a software engineer, I think that the keyboard may be one of the most important parts of my setup. At least that's what I tell myself to justify the amount of time I spend thinking and talking about keyboards.

At any rate, I'm pretty in to keyboards and I suspect there are other people interested in them as well. This session will be a simple gathering of people who want to talk about keyboards. You don't need to know much of anything about keyboards in order to talk about them, given you probably use them day to day.

Feel free to bring in an interesting/cool/different/old keyboard if you've got one, otherwise bring yourself! I'll probably bring a couple of the stranger ones I've got around my house.

I'm a software engineer and software enthusiast! I'm also very into keyboards (the typing kind). I'm primarily a RoR/Jruby/Java person for a company called Granicus.

Currently I type on a keyboard I'm tentatively calling the MittensKB (the first version looked like a pair of mittens, though TBH it doesn't really anymore so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

You can learn more about me on my website.
