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.

Workstation

  • MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, 32GB RAM, 2019)

    I use this for my work as it is given to me for that purpose. This is the first time I am using a MacBook!

  • iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 40GB RAM, 2020)

    This is what I use for my personal work and projects. I have only started using Mac only since April 2022.

  • UPLIFT Standing Desk (V2 & V2-Commercial)

    So as it turned out sitting down hurts me more than standing. I have been standing to do work since 2020!

Development tools

  • Visual Studio Code

    The faveirte kid on the block. I enjoy using this feature-rich IDE.

Hosting

  • CapRover

    My favorite to go to app/database deployment and web server manager. I am hosting dankore.com and many others using CapRover.

Design

  • Marq

    Formerly Lucidpress. I use Marq for wireframing and making graphic.

Productivity

  • Trello

    It’s not the newest kid on the block but it’s still one of best out there. My family use it to plan and organize our day and future.
