Inspired by the website Uses.tech, I decided to jot down the various tech I use every day.

Hardware

  • Alienware Aurora A6 PC
    • Windows 10 Pro
    • Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080
    • 32 GB RAM
    • Etc.

Software (Shared between PC and Mac)

  • JetBrains suite of IDE’s as my primary code editors. Mostly I use PHPStorm, Rider, Android Studio, and Clion. I just haven’t been satisfied with VS Code, Visual Studio, Sublime, etc. as a replacement for these IDE’s. The features and DX are just too good. Not to mention the code completion and intelli-sense is just so much better.
