Where the developer to learn a blind method is set to English. + the characters ($;:&{})?

Actually, a subject.

At the time, about 15 years ago had studied the blind set for the Russian layout in the program "Solo on the keyboard", which of course is very useful and saved a lot of time.

Have you studied blind set in English. layout, and if so, could you tell me any services, or desktop software?
"Solo on the keyboard" has since been updated and supplemented. But maybe there is something better and more modern that will accelerate the learning?

No, Russian is not studied, but type blindly and very fast. Not so, as taught in "solo", there is a special position for the fingers, etc., just fingers memorize the layout. The more you type, the more developed this memory. You will just present in the minds of the letter, e.g. "u", and then press the blind key, and it will be this letter. For example, the text I typed blindly according to this method, and made just two unforced errors.

Conclusion - the best way to study touch typing is a continuous practice the actual set.
I, in principle, also in English now typing. But since typing is not studied, in different situations with different fingers press the letter that's wrong in my opinion. Because of this there are mistakes, especially with the characters when they need to press while holding shift. - alayna85 commented on June 5th 19 at 22:08

Why study this specifically if it will come at the time of writing the code? And quite quickly.

Well, you can then to try to practice.

Solo on the keyboard full G, with all due respect to its creators.

Use VerseQ.
It is possible to choose for training english.cpp option for learning.
In this embodiment, the proposed design is based on the sets of various JAPANESE (actually so called cpp) and gives jobs for the whole keyboard including special characters.
I am right now so deal with it and perhaps the only available option for this kind of task.
And solo on the keyboard, will not work because the approach of teaching is wrong.
I don't know about English, but in Russian keyboard layout and learned to touch-type in Solo. And it worked. - alayna85 commented on June 5th 19 at 22:12

Typing blind in both English and Russian with the speed of 300 characters per minute, not the correct fingers (index and little finger printing is not used, the thick fingers only for space). Just as Alex wrote, it takes practice, lots of practice.
Or just erase the characters on the keyboard, or just try to the to watch and at random to look for the desired character. First, it will enrage, but after a week of misses is very small. Write a lot, in chatichah code, just notes - then success is guaranteed.
But writing code alone over time makes little to degrade fast printing, because all sorts of hints, emmet, etc. give the possibility to write less code.

Ali bought a keyboard without letters without numbers, without anything just pure keys. Sat down to work. Was trying to remember where each letter digit token. After 2 weeks of typing blind Russian, English, all the signs completely.
How to put your fingers assembled in the program "solo on the keyboard".

Spec. the characters themselves will come. Code on simulators to write is not interesting.
Favorite service to practice Typing Cat. Include a typing test and go to set records.

vse10.ru — a set of lessons and tests. Free.

Stamina.ru — a set of lessons and tests. Free.
Verseq.ru — learning algorithm, problem letters and combinations will occur more often. Paid.
• mySimula — learning algorithm, problem letters and combinations will occur more often. Free.

I daily for ~20 minutes, use Stamina + (Verseq/mySimula) + vse10 to samiksamano.

Also recommend to study the option of alternative productions of hands stamina.ru/keyboard_trainer/finger_layout
Me alternative "Yam told" liked more than the classic "Jonesy what ALG" (already 5 years Yuantong e) +no need to look for an ergonomic keyboard: even on a normal straight keyboard to start setting hands on "Yam told" hands lie at an angle → less tired wrist.

Itself came, via games. Quick purchase or a desire to Express the range of emotions your teammates.

this book studied and then constantly forced to remember the location when typing the code
... I do not know what is best ....

I think that the main programmer
- to think correctly
- to keep attention on the task at
- less to do obezyana work.

Typing in the beginning a lot of attention eats.

I first mastered the blind print in Russian. With the help of Solo. It was in 2003.
Then in 2004, mastered the English using the same Solo (there is a version for the English layout). Blind English mastered much faster, as you already know the basic principle is to keep the index fingers on the "tabs" on the keys F and J
The main thing is to keep the fingers correctly and return them to the correct places, then just practice writing something in English.
