I’ve been lurking here for a little while but figured it was time to introduce myself. I’ve been hanging out in the ai03 designer discord as s.nagy and I’m on reddit as visageofscott.
I’m Scott, and I’ve been getting progressively deeper into mechanical keyboards over the past year. I started with a generic Durgod TKL, then switched to orthos and splits with preonics, id/xd75s, a nyquist, as well as a few acrylic stacked staggered layouts and macropads.
Probably about 6 months ago I decided to start building my own keyboard. I’ve been using a POM sandwich split version of my keyboard, which I’ve named The Basis, for a few months now and I’ve just finished building the first polycarb monolithic version. I’m still working on the firmware for that version because I switched to an MCU that isn’t supported in QMK. I’ve started posting most of the photos of this board on instagram at https://www.instagram.com/_tangent_space_/
For my day job, I’m a software engineer for a big tech company in the Seattle area. I have a 2 year old daughter who wants me to build a version of my keyboard for her, and making a toddler-safe version of my board is next on my list.
Stoked to be here!
