- 15” MacBook Pro (2019) that my company provided.
- Apple Magic Keyboard, also provided by my company. I used to use a mechanical keyboard, but now it feels intolerably thick. Maybe I’ll buy one of those fancy wrist pads and try again some day.
- Anker Gaming Mouse.
- An MSI gaming laptop at home. It’s some years old now, but still a thing of beauty.
- Squared or dotted paper and a black gel ink ballpoint or fineliner. I’m not picky about the brand, so long as it doesn’t scratch on the paper too much. I always wanted to be the kind of person who has a favourite pen and just stockpiles them, but I’m not there yet.
- Figma for design work. I’m not a designer, and Figma makes it super easy to put together at least basic wireframes and prototypes without really needing to know what you’re doing.
- iTerm2 with Oh My Zsh.
- While a lot of people dig Postman, I use Paw to interact with and test APIs. It’s feature-rich and works almost exactly the way I want it to.
- RubyMine for serious Ruby work.
- Todoist for holding chaos at bay.
- Visual Studio Code for editing code and other text files.
- Windows Subsystem for Linux whenever I’ve doing web development on a Windows machine. I spent a long time rotating through various Linux distributions, but these days I don’t have the patience or skill to babysit them. And I like video games too much.
