I'm mostly doing Frontend development and I'm also a nomadic worker. In other words, I'm 100% remote and I travel. A lot.
- MacBook Pro M1 (13-inch)
- No extra screen. I've found myself more focus with only one screen
- Roost Laptop Stand
- Keychron K3 Mechanical keyboard and a Magic keyboard 2 (when I travel)
- Magic Trackpad 2 and a G403 HERO Mouse
- Notepad where I write my daily MIT
- OnePlus Nord (and an old Huawei as a backup)
- Sony MDR 1000X. A noise-cancelling headphone with 2 modes: wired or wireless (bluetooth). I also have some Airpods.
- Travel&daily bag is a Minaal Carry-on 2.0 (with packing cubes). I love it!
I travel too much to have a proper desk! ;)
- VS Code is my favorite text editor so far.
- The theme I use is Material Theme which I customized.
- Full list of plugins that I Can't Live Without.

My main browser is Brave. I also use the following extensions:

Bat - the
catcommand on steroids.
- n - a super handy tool for node version management.
I also use Vim from time to time.
I have a very minimalistic approach when it comes to my dock. If I don't use an app -at least- once
a day, I remove it from the dock.
I also use these applications:
- Giphy Capture is my go-to screen recording app when I need to share something with my colleagues. I found it simple to use.
- CrossOver - to run Windows App on Mac (it's a paid product).
Note: I now use Slack in my browser (so Grammarly can proofread my messages)
