I use a Macbook Pro with a German keyboard. Some special characters like square brackets, curly brackets, pipe or tilde are not labeled on the keyboard. I am not a programmer, so I don't use these characters very often, but sometimes I do write a few lines of code and I am using the terminal regulary. It always drives me crazy when I have to try out all possible key combinations until I find the special character I am looking for.
So I created a wallpaper with the special characters I use the most often and their corresponding keyboard shortcuts.
The wallpaper is optimized for the 15 inch Macbook Pro with retina display.
