A friend, Kyle McDonald, suggested a mechanical keyboard as a purchase. After succumbing to peer pressure and doing some research, I purchased a pre-built mechanical keyboard (Keychron). Since then, I have dived deeper into the world of mechanical keyboards, discovering different types of switches, custom boards, and other companies.
My favorite part is the building the keyboard. Each switch has a different feeling, offers the ability to make a keyboard that fits your typing style and requirements. I tend to prefer switches with a heavier actuation force, as they provide a more tactile and satisfying typing experience.
I’ve dove deep into the mechinical keyboard world. There is a massive community on YouTube and Twitch. My favorite YouTuber is Alexotos. All of the large providers have a discord so if you’re interesting. There is Kinetics Lab, KBD Fans, Keebs for All, and many more out there.
