Software I use, gadgets I love, and other things I recommend.
I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software, stay productive, or buy to fool myself into thinking I’m being productive when I’m really just procrastinating. Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff.
13” MacBook Air, M1, 16GB RAM (2020)
I was a Windows user for a long time, but switching to a Mac made a huge difference in my productivity.
LG UL550 4K Monitor
More code, more visibility.
Logitech MX Master 3
Best mouse paired with MacOS.
Keychron K2 V2 (Hotswappable)
Best keyboard till date I've tried.
I rely on it.
I was a iTerm2 user for the longest time, but Warp is much faster and have autocompletion built in.
Great software for working with databases. Has saved me from building about a thousand admin interfaces for my various projects over the years.
We started using Figma as just a design tool but now it’s become our virtual whiteboard for the entire company. Never would have expected the collaboration features to be the real hook.
It’s not the newest kid on the block but it’s still the fastest. The Sublime Text of the application launcher world.
Using a daily notes system instead of trying to keep things organized by topics has been super powerful for me. And with Reflect, it’s still easy for me to keep all of that stuff discoverable by topic even though all of my writing happens in the daily note.
Great tool for scheduling meetings while protecting my calendar and making sure I still have lots of time for deep work during the week.
Simple tool for blocking distracting websites when I need to just do the work and get some momentum going.
