I like to change things a lot and as a result, this page will probably be inaccurate at the time of you reading this. But here is what I'm using:
Editor & Terminal
- Visual Studio Code is the editor of choice for any language I program in for just about everything.
- Cobalt2 from the amazing Wes Bos for my VS Code theme.
- For a font, I use Fira Code with ligatures enabled. Ligatures are amazing.
- Hyper Terminal, ZSH Shell, and Oh My Zsh to handle all my CLI stuff.
- Browser of choice still is Google Chrome and occasionally Firefox Dev.
- Discord and Slack are the primary chat applications I use to interact with different communities.
- For notetaking and to-do lists I use Trello, I really love the Kanban board style of it.
- BackBlaze provides offsite backups to my entire PC just in case.
- Adobe Lightroom for photo editing, and Adobe Premiere Pro for video editing.
- 1password for password management because we shouldn't be doing that manually anymore.
- Biggest one for me is Grammarly because somehow at the age of 30 I still can't spell many things correctly!
- React Developer Tools this seems pretty explanatory
- aXe accessibility tools to test a11y of my sites
- Hosting for everything I have is done on Linode because its cheap and reliable
- Image support provided by Cloudinary

- All websites use Namecheap for their registration

- Keychron k8 mechanical keyboard with cherry blue switches. I'm not happy with the product though…
- Logitech G502 mouse
- Ifi Zen DAC for when using headphones for listening. Audeze LCD-X are my usual cans of choice in my office, although I have a pair of Drop + HiFiman HE4xx that I also use occasionally.
- When I want to use my speakers I've got a Fiio K5 Pro that I then use with my M-Audio BX4, although there are plans to replace those monitors in the near future…

This page was inspired by Wes Bos and many others who also basically copied his template. I'm not original, cut me some slack.
