Do you like typing? Chances are that if you're reading this, your job involves typing a great deal. If that's the case, you may have pretty strong feelings about your keyboard. Whether it's an old IBM model m, your Mac laptop keyboard, or a bespoke split you made yourself, this session is a place for you to come chat about why you like it with other people who have similarly strong feelings!
Last year it was pretty free form, just a bunch of people sitting around talking about keyboards. I thought that worked pretty well. A few of us brought in some of the more interesting things in our collections. I'd encourage people to do that again! Personally I'll probably bring in half a dozen different keyboards I've got lying around.You should attend this session if:
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.
