I really like sharing what I use, so this post will be about my development workspace and programs.
This post was inspired by the following tweets (1st is in spanish):
Mac computers are used in Front-end but today I develop on Windows 10 and I have no laptop.
My only and main machine to developt at home is a ten years old computer. My CPU is an Intel Core2 Duo Processor from 2006 mounted on an Asus P5E motherboard, with two hard drives, the main one is a 74gb Western Digital Raptor and the second one is a 500gb Western Digital Black Edition. I have 4gb of RAM with a nVIDIA GT240 graphics card.
I have an Asus VS247 24” monitor.
Mobile Devices and Peripherals
As developer is necessary to test websites so I have some other devices, an old Samsung Galaxy S3, one Motorla Moto G 1st Edition, one Motorla Moto G 2st Edition, one Motorla Moto G 2015, one HTC M7, one iPhone 4, one Samsung Galaxy Tab and one iPad Mini 2 a Sonyx Xperia Z Tablet and growing.
Update: I added a brand new iPhone 6s Plus and an old Samsung Galaxy Y.
One of the best things I bought is my black Cherry MX 3000 mechanical keyboard wich cost me 80€.
I’m proud to have a Logitech G600 Gaming mouse wich have been used for gaming wich cost me 65€, it slides on an Icemat 2nd Edition Mouse Pad, it was a gift to do an analysis for arenazero.net 10-12 years ago.
As a ex videogame player I use a Sennheiser PC 350 headset but now it is used to talk with clients via Skype and… (you’ll see next week I hope).
I rarely use my Wacom Intuos 3 A5.
I have a Comtrend CT 5361 Router from Telefonica at home with 30mb cable conection.
I like space, so I bougth some time ago a Thyge Desktop from Ikea.
I bought recently an Embody Herman Miller because I spend 10-12hours a day working.
Editor + Terminal
Sublime Text v3 beta is my editor — I tried Dreamweaver, Brakets but aren’t at Sublime Text levels for my own personal use.
The command prompt Node.js is installed when you install Node.js.
I use Text Expander for Windows for my code snippets.
I use Evernote to keep my notes and taks.
I use Prepros to compile Sass and CSS prefixing, It comes with built in server for cross browser testing. I upload and version control my code via GitHub Desktop for GitHub Repositories and Sourcetree for BitBucket Repositories.
