With the Eficode APR-01 keyboard, zero day delivery is literally at the fingertips of every developer.

Helsinki, Finland, April 1st 2021 - Eficode, Europe's leading DevOps company, has today announced its first ever hardware product, a special keyboard for software developers simplifying their transition to the cloud.

Software eats the world, and the need to adapt to changing customer demands faster than the competitors is more fierce than ever. Miss a feature, and customers flock to the competitor. Discover a bug, and social media goes haywire. To address this situation, Eficode has launched a new hardware product, Eficode APR-01 keyboard, which is tightly integrated with Visual Studio Code. As soon as a software developer types a letter using this keyboard, the keyboard driver immediately engages testing, builds a new release and deploys it to production. The innovative combination of test automation, continuous integration and continuous deployment brings cycle time, one of the software development productivity metrics, down to just one keystroke.

“There is no more annoying thing to a software developer than to have proudly completed their code and not have it at the users’ disposal. This new Eficode APR-01 keyboard is a true CI/CD powerhouse! As developers type their code, the rest is taken care of - keystroke by keystroke.”, says Marko Klemetti, Chief Technology Officer at Eficode. “We are still working on the final challenge of improving the deployment failure rate. Our next release of the keyboard will have an option to define which characters invoke the deployment process, such as a closing parenthesis (Hello Clojure programmers!), a closing curly brace or a semicolon. However, even this first keyboard model is fully compatible with our statement that ‘Leading organizations fail in production’. Some of them are just faster than others”, concludes Marko.

The keyboard has been submitted to type approval for federal regulatory agencies today on April 1st. Customers should keep an eye on the “Eficode APR-01 keyboard” for more details.
