Discussion on: Creating an Ergonomic Workspace

@jess does all her typing on an external ergonomic keyboard that sits on her lap and when I started getting some issues, she recommended I do the same, but I kind of find that disruptive to my ability to pick up and go with my computer set up as easily as I'd like. If I go fully native with my laptop, I get to have the same experience, more or less, wherever I'm sitting. I probably do 50% of my coding at my main office desk and the rest is spread between home, random other places, and other spots in the office.

Not sure what I'm trying to say, but maybe I wouldn't be concerned about this fickle problem if I ever got really bad carpal tunnel.

It definitely helps mixing up your work environment! My problem started when I was sitting in the same position for 50 hours per week 😰

That sounds like a great keyboard, definitely would be something to get used to, not using a desk. Neat!
