KBD.NEWS Advent Calendar 2023

The KBD.NEWS Advent Calendar is a series of longer format articles by revered members of the keyboard community published one by one in December. Some background on the format in last year's introduction.

While there will be invited authors, feel free to contact me if you'd like to contribute an article. At least two authors have backtracked in the last minute so you can still join. ;) Here are the guidelines for authors.

Just like the first calendar here on kbd.news (2022 MK Advent Calendar), the format is similar to the original ones that have been a tradition in the Japanese DIY keyboard community. (You can find this year's Japanese calendars here, here & here.)
