  1. There’s a programmer version of Dvorak that makes the brackets easier to access by putting them where the digits are (you need to hit shift to get a number). I didn’t learn it when I was picking up Dvorak, and I’m not sure I’m prepared to switch now, though I’m thinking about it.
    As for pair programming, all OSes I’m aware of have keyboard shortcuts for switching between two language/keyboard layouts.

    1. Yea, I saw that when I was researching Dvorak, but it seemed to be even rarer than Dvorak in general, so I guessed general support would be questionable. Plus, programming symbols change over time – I like this diagram:
      Good point on the keyboard switching, although I think it’ll still introduce more friction to the pairing process. Worth a shot, though, or maybe with the Qido dongle.
