Howdy! I’m Summer Tomaseski, a native Texan living in the Dallas area. I’ve been a software developer professionally for 11 years now, though I actually started when I was 14! I learned the basics of HTML/CSS to make custom pet pages for my Neopets, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
I have two LLCs that I manage:
My two LLCs keep me very busy, which I like. In my free time, I help manage Society of Play, a nonprofit to help and enpower game developers.
When I’m not writing code or working on my game, I read fantasy novels or play one of the Dark Souls games with my husband. I usually have a cat on me during this, which is wonderful. Happiness is a purring cat, after all!
I have an ErgoDox Glow set up in the Colemak layout. Switching to ErgoDox only took me a few days before I was typing at the same speed as I used to. Learning Colemak took me about three months, and I was at a decent speed about six months in. After a year, I type the exact same speed as I did on QWERTY. :) I know that’s a big selling point for the ErgoDox, and just the split nature alone helped my wrists. Colemak was just a natural step for it. I could never go back to a regular keyboard after the relief I felt.
Unless I am missing something, just the ability for the ErgoDox Glow to play more color patterns. The rainbow is awesome, but I’ve seen other LED keyboards play a kaleidoscope of colors and patterns, and I wish my keyboard would do that too. I like my rainbows!
Honestly, I’d love a tad bit more room for my desk too—and a better view. We’ll be buying a house in the future, and I am hoping to secure a nice spot by an open window, with plenty of space to spread out. I could use another plant or two over here, as well… my cats would love the space, too!
