This is a bunch of software, hardware, apps, and websites I use daily.
There are a lot of superlatives on this page, but only because this is the result of years of searching, switching, and customizing until I have found the most ideal for my workflow.
Around the start of 2020, I switched to using VS Code as my primary editor, and I absolutely love it. It is highly customizable and has a huge community behind it. I use GitHub as my light theme and Atomize as my dark theme.
For the longest time, Sublime has been my editor of choice, and to this day nothing comes close to its speed. I will forever stand behind my $70 purchase.
Brave is Chrome without Google! I have tried many times to switch to Firefox, but it has never quite worked out.
My daily development environment. Docker is pure magic and is so much fun to use!
Hands-down the best design tool you can use, plus it's web-based and collaborative. I mean, come on!
My preferred terminal for macOS. Highly customizable and very reliable.
A fantastic terminal that supports multiple environments. You can have Ubuntu, Command Prompt, PowerShell, etc. running in the same window. It's sweet!
I also use Cmder as a console emulator for work on the Windows filesystem, you just point Windows Terminal to the batch file and you're set.
An amazing cloud-hosting provider that offers many amazing additional services. Very easy to spin up a droplet to test out projects or software.
A complete life-saver; it makes it incredibly easy to maintain Laravel applications. Everything from databases to daemons can be managed on a web interface.
No explanation is needed! Cloudflare is awesome.
Huge fan! Since its acquisition by Microsoft, it has only been getting better.
I've been through at least three other domain registrars; Hover has a super clean UI and incredible customer support.
I am adamant about putting every future event, including my college and work schedule, into my Calendar. Upcoming events are displayed on my phone and I never have to worry about missing anything.
Did someone say productivity? Boy, does this program speed up your workflow. It's literally how I navigate on my Mac.
Speechless. I couldn't imagine my life without 1Password.
I use Bear because I love Markdown! I take all of my notes for college with this.
I use this to handle my domain email addresses. $50 a year for virtually unlimited domains and aliases is such a great deal.
Reputable, fast, inexpensive. I'm always connected to a VPN and you should be as well.
I use Google One (Google Drive) for backing up important data and syncing between devices.
Incredibly useful program for maintaining backups on external drives. It can diff files and directories and only copy over changed/new files.
A great media streaming solution. Buy your favorite shows, movies, and music and own them forever!
What year is it again? Yeah, I still use Foobar cause I love FLAC!
Great way to discover new artists and listen while driving.
Useful little app for keeping track of all of any subscriptions and recurring billing. Includes weekly, monthly, and yearly cost-breakdowns.
Open-source, encrypted messaging!
A handy app for controlling your computer remotely. More than just a wireless mouse and keyboard, it has support for popular applications and websites as well.
13" MacBook Pro – 2016
2.9 GHz Dual-core i5, 8 GB 2133 MHz. Light, portable, and fast!
Custom Windows 10 PC
I built this PC in ~2014 and I've been slowly upgrading its specs ever since; it's something I've put quite a lot of work into, and I am very happy with it!
