k0pernikus504217dI tried Dvorak, learning it wasn't what killed it for me though. My main annoyance was relearning or remapping all the shortcuts.
Is it more ergonomic? Can't tell. Was it faster? Nope, but also because I dropped it after a few weaks.
The only thing I did change was from German to an US layout. Here I only had to relearn y vs z and the symbols, but the better availability of the common coding symbols made it much more ergonomic for me. (Horrible positions of the curly brace or @ on German layout.)
A few years back I also invested time into actually doing ten finger typing on a us layout. That turned out to be a huge productivity boost for me. (And still do.)
hell1861917dI switched to Dvorak Programmer about 2 years ago.
- The first steps are like putting needles on your eyes...
- I find it better to use emacs with dvorak + Ctrl mapped to caps lock
I stopped training everyday but I can write pretty easily now...
The only downside is being clumsy with Qwerty now... But I can still be faster than my lead on qwerty looking at the keys...
