Stuff I Use

This is a probably-not-quite-full list of tools or other services I use daily to (mostly) get things done.

Only things I actually enjoy using are listed here! I’ll try to keep this updated and add things when I realise they’re not listed.

Hardware I Use Daily

  • 16 inch 2019 Retina MacBook Pro
    • OS: macOS 11.1 Big Sur
    • CPU: 2.6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7
    • RAM: 64 GB
    • GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB + Radeon Pro 5500M 8GB
    • Storage: 1TB SSD
  • iPhone 12 Pro – 128GB
  • Apple Watch Series 5
  • 2019 10.2inch iPad – 128GB
  • AirPods 2 (absolutely love these)

Project Management Tools

  • Trello – Everyone knows Trello!
  • GitHub – Everyone knows GitHub! Used to host code

Platform Tools

  • Hetzner – Great, well-priced servers for basically anything. Can’t fault these guys, other than their support service being slow but it’s rare you ever need to talk to them
  • BunnyCDN – Awesome CDN, great team behind it, good pricing. Not really much else to say to be honest.
  • CloudFlare – Need I say any more? We all know what it’s for!

Development Tools

  • PhpStorm – I’m a huge fan of this software, it really can’t be beaten. Go sign up now.
  • Laravel – Pretty much everything I build in PHP is built on top of this framework. It takes out so much of the headache of web development it’s truly unreal. Go on, you’ll love it.
  • Laravel Valet – For running things locally on my Mac. Great software, simple management. Is good.
