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

I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software, stay productive, or buy to fool myself into thinking I’m being productive when I’m really just procrastinating. Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff.


  • 14” MacBook Pro, M2 Max, 64GB RAM (2022)

  • Apple Pro Display XDR (Standard Glass)

  • Keychron 3 Keyboard

  • MX Master 3 Mouse

  • Kindle Scribe for Notes

Development tools

  • Visual Studio Code

    I don’t care if it’s missing all of the fancy IDE features everyone else relies on, VS Code is the best text editor ever made specially once coupled with the right extensions.

  • iTerm2

    I’m honestly not even sure what features I get with this that aren’t just part of the macOS Terminal but it’s what I use.

  • TablePlus

    Great software for working with databases. Has saved me from building about a thousand admin interfaces for my various projects over the years.

  • NeoVim

    When I need to focus on something without anything else distracting me and I do not need the VS Code extra power, I rely on the forever lasting vim experience.


  • Basecamp

    Every projects starts with a Basecamp. It’s the best way to keep everything organized and keep the team on the same page. I’ve tried a million other tools and nothing comes close.

  • Hey

    No more email anxiety. No more email overload. No more email fatigue. Just email as it should be. I’ve been using Hey since the first day it was available and it’s the best thing to happen to email since Gmail.
