re: Is it necessary to learn touch typing? VIEW POST


When I started coding ~30 years ago, I never learned to touch type from the perspective of having my fingers resting on the middle row - in my case it was just a case of mentally understanding where the keys were, typing more and more, to the point where I can type fast without having “officially” learned to touch type QWERTY, but I can do it without looking at the keyboard. I’d say as a coder you’ll definitely want to be efficient in your use of the keyboard and in typing, but I never forced myself to learn classical keyboard touch typing.
