16” MacBook Pro, 6-Core i7, 32GB RAM (2019)
Believe it or not, before I was using the MacBook, I was a PC person. I still can’t believe I used a PC all those years as it hindered my development speed dramatically. Once you go Mac, you never go back 😉.
Viotek 32” display (Standard Glass)
Not the fanciest monitor on the market, but a solid 1080p monitor nonetheless. When you are designing for the web, every pixel matters.
Apple Magic Keyboard
I used to have an old mechanical keyboard back in the day. While the clicky feeling and lights were a cool aesthetic, I was ready for a change. This keyboard lets me seamlessly go from laptop to keyboard without missing a beat.
Apple Magic Trackpad
Something about all the gestures makes me feel like a wizard with special powers. Like my keyboard I really like the ease of going from my MacBook to my trackpad without missing a beat.
Autonomous ErgoChair Pro
If I’m going to slouch in the worst ergonomic position imaginable all day, I might as well do it in a fancy chair.
Visual Studio Code
I’ve used Notepad++, Atom, Sublime Text, and now Visual Studio Code. I will never go back to another IDE.
I’m honestly not even sure what features I get with this that aren’t just part of the macOS Terminal but it’s what I use.
Great software for working with databases. Has saved me from building about a thousand admin interfaces for my various projects over the years.
I don’t design often, but when I do I reach for Figma.
It’s not the newest kid on the block but it’s still the fastest. The Visual Studio Code of the application launcher world.
I often find myself needing to reach for Spectacle for situations such as building responsive websites. This allows me to split screen my editor and the browser so I can work more efficiently.
