Change out the keys on this backlit piece of hardware made just for programmers.

Most professions have a specific “tool of the trade,” and when it comes to programmers, theirs would have to be the humble keyboard. It is truly amazing what can be accomplished using a piece of plastic fitted with a set of keys.

Jeff Atwood, co-founder of the super popular coding Q&A site Stack Overflow and author of the blog Coding Horror, has teamed up with Weyman Kong of WASD Keyboards to create the CODE Mechanical Keyboard.

Some of the features that make this keyboard so suited to programmers include mechanical key switches, backlit keys, easily swappable keys, and the fact that is available with 104- or 87-keys. DIP switches on the bottom of the keyboard make it highly customizable, letting you switch between QWERTY/Dvorak/Colemac at a hardware level, disable the Windows key, swap CMD/ALT for use with Macs, or turn the caps lock key into a back up CTRL key.

The keyboard currently costs $150, which puts it in the same league as a lot of other mechanical keyboard such as the Logitech’s G710 and Razer BlackWidow. It’s got a lot of features that make it worthwhile, especially if you spend the better part of every day coding consistently.
