re: Touch Typing- The Most Important Skill For Developers Nobody Talks About VIEW POST


Idk if I understand the reasoning behind COLEMAK... Did a little reading it just puts most commonly used letters on the home row. The history of QWERTY is important though as it originated as a way for keystrokes to be from different sides of the typewriter so that you could type more efficiently without the risk of the strokes crossing each other. I can imagine that QWERTY is and should be the logical choice, mainly because it's the defacto standard. Then again I learned close to 30 years ago to "touch type".

As this article points out though. You can type as fast as you want ramblings, but thought needed typing is slower anyways. So stick w QWERTY
