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

I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software and stay productive. Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff.


  • 14” MacBook Pro, M1, 32GB 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.

  • Charibdis Nano & Charibdis Dilemma

    An open-source ergo mechanicalkeyboard, featuring 3D printed DES keycaps in MJF Nylon and lubed switches. I switched from QWERTY to COLEMAK-DH and while my wpm are still not where they were, my fingers (esp. pinkies) are way happier after a day of coding.

  • MX Master 3s

    I love how its sleek, ergonomic design fits comfortably in my hand, providing great control and precision.
