Work from home setup


The beginning of every setup is a clean and spacious desk. I am using a custom made wooden desk with a 19mm ply at the top and frame size of 6ft/3ft. The Frame is black painted and top base has a wooden mica.


Ergonomic chair

I am using an ergonomic office chair bought from Amazon at Rs 6700/- . The best part of this chair is that I can adjust both the seat and the arm height according to my requirement. The wheels runs smooth if I move while being seated.

Keyboard plays a major role in productivity of every developers. I am using a Keycron k2 RGB Mechanical keyboard with the option to use by both bluetooth and cable. Keychron official website ships to most of the countries except India so I bought this mechanical keyboard from keychron India website at Rs 8000/- . The typing experience is indeed awesome.

  4. The obvious Vertical scroll with approx of 1000 lines per sec.

Mobile devices-

  1. iPhone 11- I use this device as my primary phone as well as a testing device.

  2. iPad Air 2020 + Apple Pencil- I use this device primarily to note down my daily to-do tasks and a little bit of photo and video editing. Otherwise I used this to watch Netflix or Amazon Prime video.

  3. OnePlus 6t- This device used to be my primary phone before but now I use this device to test android related stuffs

Earphone and mic-

I am not a big fan of loud music so I always use a bluetooth earphone to listen to music or to do an audio/video chat. I use OnePlus bullet if I am doing some physical activity else I use Boat AirDope if I am in the desk.
