The two biggest in terms of physical tools for me are probably my Peak Design Everyday Backpack (I backed the project on Kickstarter, got it almost 2.5 years ago, have used it every day since, and it still shows no signs of wear despite me being rather rough with it), and my SwiftPoint Z (best gaming mouse I've ever used, only complaint is that it has no way to configure it to not present as a game controller in addition to a mouse (means I can't use it for some poorly designed games that ignore mouse/keyboard input if they see a controller)).

As far as software, Vim, Powerline, and ZSH are probably the biggest ones in terms of my favorites for day-to-day usage.

I've had my Acer Spin 3 with Linux Mint for about 2.5 years now, and it still works fine. I use it for pretty much everything. I also have a Samsung Chromebook 3 with Lubuntu installed via crouton. For my window manager, I use xfce on both laptops. I like the look of it, and it's pretty easy to run on most systems. In terms of software, I would say my favorites/most used are the xfce terminal emulator, Eclipse, vscode, and Firefox (although I would be lying if I didn't include Minecraft).

Git Concepts I Wish I Knew Years Ago

I'm talking about Git and version control of course.

One does not simply learn git
