If you’re anything like me you probably love to talk about the tools that you use to do your work every day. This page serves as a living document of just that.
- Terminal — Recently switched back to Terminal from iTerm2 since Tmux is all I need really. Dracula as the color scheme and Jetbrains Mono as the font.
- Zsh — You can find my dotfiles right here.
- NeoMutt — Simple, fast e-mail client. I use this one for quickly triaging incoming messages. Otherwise I’ll use the default Apple Mail app.
- Tmux — Allows me to me switch between multiple programs and projects at once.
- Vim — Vim is and always will be my favorite editor, though I must admit I fire up VS Code every once in a while as well.
- Newsboat — Great RSS reader.
- Amphetamine — I use my laptop like a desktop, so nothing should ever sleep. This handy tool prevents that.
- Docker — I try and run as much of the tools that I use on the command-line in containers for obvious reasons.
- AWS CLI — I use the AWS CLI for all sorts of work, mostly because I don’t like clicking around in the web UI all the time.
- CloudFormation — All infrastructure as code goes here
- Terraform — When CloudFormation doesn’t quite cut it.
- Git — I’m a heavy user of Git and GitHub for storing my infrastructure as code projects.
- 1Password — 1Password really is a life saver. I couldn’t possibly live without it.
- Slack — I work remote all the time, either at home or at clients. Slack makes it possible to stay in touch with colleagues.
- 16” MacBook Pro — I’m currently using the 2019 model with a 6-core i7, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
- LG 27UK850 — After using a Dell Ultrasharp 1440p panel for the longest time I’ve switched to this LG one. It’s 4K and it has USB-C connections making it future-proof for now.
- iPhone 11 — This is again the best iPhone Apple has ever made. I love the camera and the huge screen, though I understand it’s not for everybody.
- Logitech MX Ergo: Finally replaced my aging M570 trackball with this new one.
- Magic Mouse 2 — In terms of ergonomics this isn’t the best mouse so I switch to the trackpad or trackball regulary to prevent RSI. I love this mouse because it’s very portable and has touch input.
- Magic Keyboard — Hands down the best keyboard ever made. I’m using the small version without the numpad because it fits in my bag. Portability is important to me.
- AirPods Pro — Awesome pair of headphones to block out the noise caused by open-office plans I often find myself in.
