Quitting Applications with Dvorak

Hey there! I'm currently working on a CLI tool to deploy WordPress apps to DigitalOcean. Check it out! It's free and open source.


I wrote earlier that I’ve been training myself on the Dvorak keyboard layout lately, so the fun part is that the Dvorak Q is right where the Qwerty X is and I’m a crazy user of shortcut keys, so there you have it! Can’t wait to make the full switch. By the way, I’m using this plugin to embed tweets.

  • Are you using Dvorak fulltime or switching back and forth? I’ve given it a go a few times but always have way to much work to do and can’t take the hit to typing productivity. Unfortunately trading back and forth means I’m always thinking about typIng.

    I figure I’ll make the full switch during a week when I’m on vacation so the productivity isn’t an issue.

    • Curtis, I’m switching back and forth and productivity sometimes suffers. I tend to dedicate a couple of hours per day to socialize around the web in Dvorak. I switch to Qwerty when I need to code something fast or reply to an urgent e-mail. This comment was written in Dvorak ;)
