πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’» … uses

My toolkit, gear & tools that I use every day in my projects & life

  • Emojis everywhere
  • Immutable data everywhere

Development tools (IDE, Terminal, …)

  • πŸ’» VS Code for everything. Unbeatable speed & dev bliss.
  • ⚑️ Hyper as my only terminal, with some plugins.
  • πŸ’² Bash shell (custom dotfile config)
  • πŸ“‘ Used to use Dash, but recently replaced it with DevDocs which I like more.
  • 🐳 Docker (for Mac & Kitematic) for most of the things I actually want to deploy or need in the background.
  • πŸ™ GIT IN THE SHELL LIKE A HARDCORE DEV.
  • 😴 Insomnia for network requests and tinkering with HTTP.
  • 🍻 Homebrew which offers everything. I'll always check homebrew-cask first before downloading an app through its website. The modularity and ease-of-use makes it so awesome.
  • πŸ™ I lied a bit before and sometimes use Fork when I need to do complex Git mumbo jumbo or need a project overview.
  • 🀝 When reverse engineering APIs, apps, etc mitmproxy is thing I need.

Productivity apps

  • πŸ”‘ 1Password, which I love to death. Seriously this app, wow, amazing
  • πŸ“’ OneNote to store every reference to an article about dev, tech, world, news & recipes. The syncing engine and mobile apps suck though.
  • πŸ“¨ Airmail because I like the custom options of tags and visual language they use
  • πŸ“‹ Paste, an awesome clipboard manager whice makes it really really easy to sync clips between work & home and organise snippets.
  • 🎩 Alfred. Trackpads and mouses are for noobs. I'm a workflow wonderchild.
  • βœ… Things. Mainly on the iPhone and the mail option/Reminders.app option for desktop since the price is a bit too steep. But this truly is the only task manager which actually helps me get things done.
  • πŸš€ Rocket for easy and quick typing of emojis.
  • πŸ‘“ Spectacle with center, full screen and next display as the only shortcuts.
  • πŸ“… Google Calendar as the service & app on the iPhone. Stock macOS calendar at work and home, but I really want Fantastical but why is it so expensive…
  • πŸ—’οΈ Notion as my all-in-one tool for issue tracking, documentation, planning, checklists. This app will blow you away.
  • πŸ¦‰ NightOwl for switching light/dark theme in sync with the sunset.

Design

  • πŸ“Έ Sometimes I'll shell out my Nikon D51000. Most of the time it'll be my iPhone 8 though. When I do, I'll use Lightroom for editing.
  • 🎞 Pentax P30N which I am using to learn how to shoot on 35mm film.
  • 🀳🏻 iPhone 8 loaded with Halide (BUY THIS!), VSCO, Darkroom & Google Photos. Killer combo.
  • πŸ’Ž Sketch mostly, like the rest of the REAL designers, but these days I tend to use Figma more since it's free and runs everywhere.

Workspace

  • πŸ–₯ HP Pavilion 23xi which is a bit outdated (though Full HD and IPS) but looks really nice design-wise
  • πŸ–± Apple Magic Trackpad which I got for €30!
  • πŸƒ Plethora of plants
  • πŸ’ Raspberry Pi's for as much stuff as I can. Mostly automated or always on applications.
  • πŸ•― Scented candles.
  • An Intel NUC 6CAY as my homelab server. Big time in love with this.

At work specifics

  • πŸ–± Logitech MX Master. Best mouse in town.
  • πŸ–₯ Dell U2417H Ultrasharp monitor.
  • πŸ™ Combo of git in the shell & VS Code Git integration
  • πŸŽ’ The amazing & stylish Pinqponq Cubik Medium backpack
  • 🍡 Lots and lots and lots of cups of tea. Mate, Chai and then some.
  • πŸ₯€ Club mate as my caffeine boost & most cherised soda.

Music gear

  • πŸ”Š Libratone Loop as the wireless speaker for the living room. Exquiste design & sound, one of my favorite brands.
  • πŸ”Š Libratone Zipp Mini on my desk which I can easily move around.
  • 🎧 AIAIAI TMA-2, which is probably the best mid-range headphone ever. Current preset: S03-H05-E02-C01 (+ E05 and H03 as spare parts).
  • 🎡 iTunes Match. Yes, I'm one of the only people who actually likes iTunes and utilises it 'till my fingers bleed.
  • πŸŽ› Pioneer DJM-750 MK2 4 channel digital mixer.
  • πŸ”ˆ 2x KRK-RP6. These things are total vicious beasts.
  • πŸ’Ώ 2x Pioneer PLX-500 with Ortofon Concorde MK2 Mix
  • πŸ’Ώ 2x Pioneer XDJ-1000 which are perfect for spinning sets from USB at home.
  • ⏺ The Pioneer DJM-REC app which just works with my mixer. For editing and recording records I mostly use Audition since it is A MONSTER.
