Entirely agree, great article! – James Beedy – Medium
“For me, the process entailed finding the right combination of a good keyboard with a good key layout. In case you are interested, the optimal setup (for me) consisted of pairing the Norman layout (, what I found to be the perfect layout), with a Kinesis Advantage 2 (, what I found to be the perfect keyboard).

“As for learning the Norman layout, I used TypeFu (can be found in chrome web store) which has built in support for Norman. It took me about 1 month on the Norman layout before I had surpassed my previous WPM on Qwerty.”

keyboard - Optimized Layout for Kinesis Advantage - Stack Overflow
“The 2 things I found most useful were to put the shift key under the left thumb and putting all the arrows under the right hand. This allows me to comfortably hit ctrl+shift with my thumb and move with the arrows on the other hand to select text and navigate around excel.”

jcowgar/kinesis-advantage-2: Mappings and Macros for the Kinesis Advantage 2 keyboard
“I am a computer programmer that has many requirements normal computer users may not from their keyboard. Thus, I have many remappings and macros for my Kinesis Advantage 2 keyboard.

“I’ve setup this repository to share them and to keep my settings backed up. Here you will find many text files performing specific tasks. The Advantage 2 does not use these files. They are for reference and for building new layers. You will also find files such as qwerty.txt, 1_qwerty.txt, etc… These files the Advantage 2 does use directly.”

keyboard - Kinesis Advantage F7 and F8 acts as email and internet buttons - Super User
To undo Kinesis’s default mapping of F7 and F8 to mail and browser (in Windows):
“To turn off settings individually, hold = and tap the appropriate key (=F7, =F8). To turn of both settings at once in this group, activate one of the master settings (=m, =p, or =w).”

Joomy Korkut - Switching to Kinesis Advantage
On remapping a Kinesis Advantage for use on a Mac:
“ I still created a macro in the keyboard that maps CapsLock to Command + Tab so that if I quickly need to go to the previous app, that is only one convenient key.”

Kinesis and ErgoDox Optimal Thumb Cluster Layouts
“This page shows a collection of layout ideas for Kinesis and ergodox keyboards.

“Kinesis default layout is well designed, optimal for normal users who type a lot, but not for people with smaller hands and need to press Ctrl and Alt key frequently. (Such as in photoshop or emacs.)”

And from the Disqus comments:
“My solution was to remap the four arrow keys. I had Ctrl | Alt in the left half (bottom-right corner), and Alt | Ctrl in the right half (bottom-left corner), symmetric. They are kinda small, but that way I did not need to move my hands too much, and could choose which keys to press depending on the situation of the letter or symbol.

“I don't use the arrow keys often, they ended up somewhere in the clusters for when I needed them, and sacrificed Home and End, which I never use.

“Modifiers were the main reason I purchased a Truly Ergonomic, my current keyboard, Ctrl, Alt, and Shift are big and symmetric keys to the sides (in my model), their placement is way much better in my experience.”

awslabs/kinesis-aggregation: AWS libraries/modules for working with Kinesis aggregated record data
The Amazon Kinesis Producer Library (KPL) gives you the ability to write data to Amazon Kinesis with a highly efficient, asyncronous delivery model that can improve performance. The KPL is extremely powerful, but is currently only available as a Java API wrapper around a C++ executable which may not be suitable for all deployment environments. Similarly, the powerful Kinesis Client Library (KCL) provides automatic deaggregation of KPL aggregated records, but not all Kinesis consumer applications, such as those running on AWS Lambda, are currently capable of leveraging this deaggregation capability.

The Ultimate Developer Keyboard
“I enjoy all three keyboards. Right now my preference is the Ergodox. The extra keys for switching key map layers really make a big difference. Because both the Ergodox and Kinesis both have the thumb pad with the primary keys on it (space, backspace, enter, ctrl, alt), switching between them once you have mapped the new positions is very easy. Also, all three keyboards are ergo-friendly. After having switched to a split layout the numbness in my hands has gone away.”

Kinesis Savant Elite 2 Foot pedals - Wes McKinney
"The biggest issue I have hit (as mostly a Linux user) is that OS X won't allow modifier keys from one USB device to modify another. So while my pedal-as-Shift works fine on Linux, it doesn't work on Mac. So if you want to off-load modifier keys, and you use a Mac, caveat emptor."

Advantage Triple Pedal - Kinesis » Ergonomic keyboards and accessories
"With a programmable Contoured keyboard, the foot pedal may be configured to perform any user-defined keystroke or macro!

"Contoured™ keyboard users often find a foot pedal boosts productivity by enabling instant access to shortcuts (macros) or remapped keys in the ‘embedded' (keypad) layer.

"Modifiers are often useful foot switch actions, to reduce the awkward reaches often required to produce key combinations."

nicholasknight/adv2keyboard: Personal notes and layouts for the Kinesis Advantage 2 keyboard.
"Turns out, you can specify decimal HID keycodes in the layout files!

"I'm not sure of the exact rules, but I've been able to do, for example:

And "A" then types [. An initial attempt to just use [47] failed, I suspect it either must be at least 3 digits or zero-prefixed.

"A list of specified USB HID codes is available in a PDF on Chapter 10, starting on page 53."
