I got a new keyboard recently! I really admire the craftsmanship mentality of other disciplines like woodworking, writing, etc. and how having great tools and taking good care of them can make a huge difference. Taking a small step in my craft of software engineering by investing in a solid keyboard that is ergonomic for long term use and one I can swap keycaps and switches out as I grow.
The one I've picked is the ZSA Moonlander, a columnar keyboard that's split into two halves. I love the design of it and although the layout was completely alien at first, it's really growing on me as I train on it.
It's not all about the tools you use, but there is a huge multiplication effect if you pair the skill with a good tool. Using a great tool of your own? Shoot me a message, I'd love to hear about it!
