HP Pavilion Gaming 15, Ryzen 4500, 16GB RAM (2021)
I was using an Intel-based 15” Acer Nitro 5 prior to this and the difference is night and day. I am able to work with a peace of mind that my main weapon of choice is going to be available and sharp at all times.
BenQ GW2480T 24 inch (60cm) 1920 X 1080
The best option in the market in these specs. I have been using this monitor for over a year now and it has been a great. It makes me faster and more productive.
Redgear Shadow Blade Mechanical Keyboard
They don’t make keyboards the way they used to. I buy these any time I see them go up for sale and keep them in storage in case I need parts or need to retire my main.
Logitech G102 LightSync Gaming Mouse
Great mouse for the price. Super accurate and comfortable for usage for long periods of time.
Visual Studio Code
I am extremely fast with VS Code. I have tried other editors but I always come back to VS Code. I have been using it for over 3 years. I have been trying to get back to learning Vim but I am just too comfortable with VS Code.
I have been using Fish for over a year now. I have tried Zsh and Bash but I always come back to Fish. It is just too good. It’s simple, fast and easy to use. I was skeptical initially about leaving bash language but I am glad I did. Fish’s ecosystem is extremely strong and rich with packages.
GitHub cli tool
The GitHub CLI is an incredibly underrated productivity tool. I use it for everything from creating new repos to opening issues and pull requests. It’s a great way to stay in the terminal and still be able to do all of the things I need to do on GitHub.
We started using Figma as just a design tool but now it’s become our virtual whiteboard for the entire company. Never would have expected the collaboration features to be the real hook.
It just works. Very very simple. Works across multiple devices so I can do research on my phone, I can create tasks on their app and their widget is great. I work with Trello for work but for my personal projects I use Microsoft Todo.=
Good music is a must for me to be productive. I listen to Guitar LoFi music. It helps me focus and get into the zone.
