Keyboards Show and Tell

We use keyboards all day long. Ever wonder about trying out a different keyboard or layout? Whether it's to get faster, be more comfortable, or even avoid problems like RSI, there are a lot of things to try out.

A bunch of us are playing around with alternative layouts, keyboards, and ergonomics. We thought it would be fun to get together, try out some alternatives, and talk about what works. This is a great opportunity to try out Dvorak or Colemak, or the TECK, Kinesis, ErgoDox, or other alternative keyboards. We'll have mechanicals, chicklet boards, and all kinds of other fun things.

Bring your favorite keyboard or just stop by and give some new things a try! This will be a low-key mingling and chatting event and not really get into Ruby at all.

    I just realized this is the exact same time as a django district vim meetup =(. If I can't make it to this, I'll try to at least drop off a keyboard or two.

      pff, keyboards are more important than Django ;) Seriously though, hope you can at least stop by!

    I'll bring my ergodox/new model M and am sure Josh will bring out the Kinesis Advantage I'm loaning him.
