Software and other things I recommend.
I get asked about the things I use to build software and stay productive. Here’s a list of some of my favorite stuff.
This computer is a beast. I've been using it since January 2022 and love it.
I prefer to have one high resolution monitor instead of two different monitors. Check out BetterTouchTool below for some helpful window snapping stuff.
I'm in Zoom calls all day, so it made sense to spend a little money for a good webcam.
Zoom is hard enough already, I don't want to make it harder by being hard to understand on calls. This mic was relatively cheap and does a good job.
Can't say enough good things about these. If you have Apple stuff they are definitely worth the price.
I use VS Code for all my development needs. I've tried a few different editors, but I always come back to VS Code.
Great software for working with databases.
Like the regular terminal, but looks better and has more features
Big fan of the zsh shell. Check out zsh-autosuggestions as well.
Nice looking font face with ligatures
Docker Desktop is invaluable for local development
The best password manager I have used
Awesome little text expander
Clipboard manager for Mac
A producttivity powerhouse for me. I use it for window snapping, keyboard shortcuts, and more.
Turns websites into apps, which is super handy if you have clients. I like being able to open one app when I'm working on a client project which contains the project management tool, error tracking, etc.
Makes it super easy to just send a URL to a client and let them pick a meeting time that works for them
Great for keeping things organized; super powerful and configurable
