Well the other day I was chatting online and there was a mention of learning something new by somebody. Because of course there was. I made note of never looking at this new thing and wanted to learn more about it, because it did sound interesting to me. This new thing is Device Tree Syntax. I’m not very versed in this so it will be fun to learn about it.

Learning the syntax and usage is what I really want to know more about. Getting more familiar with it is going to be quite a journey for me. I do know that I will have to type more because of it and for that I am really looking forward to actually doing. I don’t type as much code as I used to and to be honest here I am a little happy about that.

I love looking through code, don’t get me wrong. It’s the making part that I might have burned out on. I want to say part of that reason is because I like troubleshooting things more. I like knowing how things work and what makes them tick. That’s part of the reason I like researching things too. Learning a little bit of history can be a good thing. Learning how things came to be and why they are in the state they are in is good. Great for context.

As I learn this thing I decided to up and learn it will take time. The other thing too is that I don’t quite have all the time in the world to both read and test things. I want to. Really, really want to. The main reason being that I want to keep tinkering with keyboards. It’s been lots of fun just looking over all types of designs and random ideas people can come up with.

I’m sure there is at least one other person wondering why. It really came down to wanting to understand a little more on how ZMK did things. It’s used in configuring the keymap and some of the other features within the firmware making process.

I’ll figure it out eventually too.
