14” MacBook Pro, M1 Pro, 16GB RAM (2021)
I was using an Intel-based 15” MacBook Pro prior to this and the difference is night and day. I’ve never heard the fans turn on a single time, even under the incredibly heavy loads I put it through with our various launch simulations.
Visual Studio Code
I've been using VS Code for a few years now and I love it. It's fast, has great support for TypeScript, and has a huge ecosystem of plugins. GitHub Copilot is also a game changer.
When it comes to testing APIs, Postman is still the best. I’ve tried a few alternatives but nothing comes close to the productivity I get from Postman.
Tailwind has been a game changer when handling CSS for my web development projects. There are a lot of love/hate opinions on this topic. For me, it's the ability to quickly read some front-end code and make adjustments without affecting the global CSS structure has been a great improvement in my DX (Developer Experience).
Figma is not only great for designing UIs, but it’s also great for implementing front end code. I use it for both.
It’s not the newest kid on the block but it’s still the fastest.
The best and most powerful task manager I’ve ever used. I like to organize my tasks by project and context, and OmniFocus makes it easy to do that.
Canon EOS RP
While the iPhone camera is great, I still like to use a real camera for special occassions. This is a great entry-level full frame camera that supports professional Canon lenses.
