Once in a while someone will ask about the specifics of software/hardware/services I use to develop with.

This page serves as a living document of those items.

Editor + Terminal

  • Visual Studio Code is my main editor right now. I am also a fan of Atom & Sublime Text 3.
  • My current theme for VSCode is Cobalt2 with Operator Mono.
  • iTerm2 V3 is my terminal, however anything project specific I find myself using the built in terminal in VSCode.

Education Resources

  • I utilize Treehouse a lot for continuing education.

Desktop Apps

  • For web design I use Sketch.
  • Password Manager is 1Password and highly recommend it to anyone. LastPass is also a great alternative.
  • Git client is Tower.
  • Unclutter is a really neat one I get a lot of use out of. Any quick notes I have I put there and sync with Dropbox.
  • I maintain backups utilizing time machine with a local HDD, along with Backblaze for my entire hard drive.

Desk Setup

  • Right now I run dual 24” moniters from Acer.
  • My development computer is a 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5 - 13” MacBook Pro (Early 2015) with 16GB Memory. This sits clamshelled on the side of my desk in a vertical HengeDock.

Hosting / Domains

  • Hosting is primarily done with DigitalOcean. I use ServerPilot to manage them.
  • I really enjoy using Namecheap and can’t recommend them enough, however, I still have a handful over at GoDaddy.
