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.


  • Dell latitude 5410

    I’ve been using Dell laptops for a long time and I’ve never had a bad experience. I like the Latitude line because they’re not flashy and they’re easy to repair.

  • Samsung Galaxy A52

    I’m not a huge phone person but I like this one. It’s got a great camera and it’s not too expensive.

Development tools

  • vscode

    I’ve tried to switch to other editors but I always come back to VSCode. It’s just too good.


    I use XAMPP to run my local development environment. I’ve tried Docker but I always end up going back to XAMPP.


  • Browser Note

    I use Browser Note to save links to things I want to read later. It’s a great way to keep my browser bookmarks clean and organized.
