Software I use, gadgets I love, and other things I recommend.

I sometimes get asked about the things I use to build software, stay productive, or buy to fool myself into thinking I'm being productive... Here's a list of all my favorite stuff.

Workstation

  • SecretLab Titan Chair

    With this chair, I'm able to sit there and code for hours, and it helps me to stay focused.

  • Two Acer Predator XB253QGP, 24”, 144Hz

    I don't like to swipe wildly around to find the window I need, so I've got three screens to keep a better overview.

  • Logitech MX Keys Mini (US Int)

    I'm a huge fan of Logitech products, and this keyboard is a pleasure. It also supports multiple devices and operating systems, and you can switch by pressing a button.

  • Logitech MX Master 3

    If you have an external keyboard, its annoying to always move your hand back to your trackpad, so an external mouse is a must-have.

  • 14” MacBook Pro, M1 Pro, 16GB RAM (2021)

    This is my personal one and the difference to the Intel-based MacBooks is night and day. I've never heard the fans turn on a single time, and the battery just lasts forever.

  • 13” MacBook Pro, 2.4 GHz i5, 16GB RAM (2019)

    This is my work MacBook and we've been through a lot. It's sometimes screaming at me, but always did its job and never let me down.

Design

  • ExcaliDraw

    I love everything about ExcaliDraw. Just a beautiful, simple and fast tool to visualize anything and make it look like a drawing.

  • Figma

    When I have to make a click prototype or a wireframe, or I'm just messing around, Figma has me covered.

Development tools

  • IntelliJ Products

    I'm using a lot of IntelliJ IDE's, because of their smart tiny features that lighten up your developer day.

  • NeoVim

    Currently I'm trying again with vim, and for small things it works quite well. But there are still many shortcuts that I need to memorize.

  • Postico

    Nice software for working with databases. Saves my ass every time my SQL skills are lacking.

  • VS Code

    For small file changes, I usually don't want to fire up a heavy IDE.

  • Warp

    A new terminal I recently discovered, It feels like Jupyter Notebook, but for the terminal. Completely switched over from iTerm2.
