Editor + Terminal

vscode

I have been using Visual Studio Code as my code editor for over a two years now and have been very happy with it. Probably my favorite electron app by far. My favorite color themes are Cobalt2, Dracula, Material Facebook. My favorite font is Dank Mono.

iterm

For my terminal, I have stuck with iTerm2. It is reliable, customizable, and just works. I go fullscreen with a slight transparency. I also use oh-my-zshell, pure-prompt, with the facebook theme. I played around with Hyper but had some issues so I switched back.

Hardware

setup

Bought my first macintosh due to it being a requirement for my coding bootcamp. It is a 2012 15” retina macbook pro sitting ontop of a Rain Laptop Stand. This has been my workhorse ever since I started coding and really enjoy working on mac. It is the closest we can get to linux but still having access to apps like Adobe’s Creative Cloud.

I recently sold my dual monitor setup and replaced it with a single Dell UltraSharp U2515H 25-Inch Monitor after reading A Single Monitor Manifesto by Cory House. It made a lot sense to me and am happy with the new setup. This new setup helps me stay focused on the task at hand and avoid distractions.

I own a Logitech HD Laptop Webcam C615 for webchats and music recordings.

Other

I use Google Keep for my daily todos and started journaling in a private repo in Github.

I use Trello for project management tasks for any given project.

My team uses Slack for office communications. The goal being that email is for external customers.

I use OpenDNS to filter content and improve network speeds.

I built a Raspberry Pi using pi-hole to filter ads and have also setup openvpn to secure traffic when I’m out in the wild.

I also setup a Disney’s Circle which is an amazing device that helps keep time limits on our children’s internet time.
