After the "Show off Your VSCode Setup" and "Show off Your terminal Setup" it's time for Workspaces. This month we are back to our office. Here is a picture of my Workspace these days.

I'm so excited to see your workspaces. Also, what are the gears that you use?

My setup. More about my recent home office updates here: twitter.com/jasonlong/status/13638...
Nice, looks like music producers table.
Yeah really 🤣
I didn't realise there was a arm rest just below the keyboard, it fits in so well!
What keyboard is that you've got there?
It’s a Durgod Hades 68. I swapped in some DSA granite keycaps.
🙊 I'm working hard to have a nice house someday
Hard work always pays off, good luck to you. 🔥
Good luck bro.Nice chair
It was taken me quite a while to build this setup slowly acquiring things over time, next thing is to get some custom length wires so I can tidy the wiring up.
Few bits of info:-
A total 24.8 million pixels being pushed by my poor old laptop!
The desk is 2m (6ft) by 2m (6ft) and still manages so be sit-stand, was a bargain at £600 (and that was 5 years ago, sit stand desks are cheaper now!). Buy a sit stand desk it will change your working life!
The chair is awesome and great if you get a sore back when you are putting in long days (hermanmiller.com/products/seating/...) - I bought mine second hand though as they are quite expensive! It is also rather pretty as far as office chairs go!
That brown mat on the floor is an anti-fatigue mat. If you buy a sit-stand desk then that should be the next thing you buy as it let's you stand for far longer!
The 2 x 43 inch 4k displays and the top right monitor are powered direct from the graphics card. The top left and the left hand monitor are powered via a USB hub.
Yes that is a DVD and Blue Ray collection, I am that old! (You can only see about 30% of it from that angle, there are way more in the shelves to the left of the picture you can't see into).
I believe those things are out-dated now and used as coasters? 😋 (and yes I am sad enough that I alphabetised them so I could find what I was looking for 🤣)
have you managed to enter the matrix yet with this rig? jk... good stuff mate👏👏👍
I choose ignorance...blue pill for me! 😂
I think you went overboard lmfao. Why would you needl ike 4 monitors and like 2 on top when you haev a vertical and a long one lmfao. Either way its dope im jelous :laugh:
So I use the massive main monitor for most work.
I can definitely recommend a large 4k monitor for development, the extra screen space let's you have 2 or 3 files open at once side by side, such as HTML, CSS and JS or your JS and you API docs so you can remember what path you gave to your API endpoints and stupid names you gave parameters! I can't really recommend anymore than one large monitor though, my use case is pretty unique 😋).
I use the large right monitor for site previews that I am working on, Outlook and some website monitoring software (stacked on top of each other taking up a third of the vertical height each).
The top 2 monitors come into play for things like researching and inspiration when designing (so I can have them visible to refer to) or OBS if I am on a video call / making instruction videos (something new I am working on!).
The left most screen is used for support queries and CRM system, it is linked to my phone system so it helps to have it "always visible" as it pulls a client record up when they call etc.
I don't use the laptop screen, but the laptop developed a fault where it goes into sleep mode if I don't have it open (it needs replacing soon as it is 4/5 years old)!
As you can probably tell I only use about half the screen space actively, the rest of it is there so things are always visible so I can quickly glance at them or use them for reference without having to switch between desktops or Alt + Tab between applications.
I've been interested on sit stand desk for a while now... I'm unsure if I can allow myself to buy one since they are pretty expensive as far as I know. Is it worth it at all?
If you work more than 6 hours a day at a computer it is essential in my opinion having now owned one.
You might be a lot younger than me but I had a bad back and shoulder from sitting and it is a lot better now (not perfect but once the damage is done it is hard to fully recover)
You can pick them up pretty cheap now maybe £200 ($280 USD) if you want a normal sized one without any bells and whistles (mine was cheap considering how large it is as it doesn’t have height settings, literally up and down buttons so you have to adjust the height manually each time, which never bothered me).
Do what I do, go second hand (used) on eBay or whatever equivalent you have where you are and then save up for new and better things once you know they are worth it.
Looks awesome 😎 👏🏻
rate my setup 🔥
Is that an ipad ?
yes!! it's my old iPad mini 1st gen 💻
😨 How are you able connect it?
It’s tooooooo old. 😨
YAM-display for the win !!! 🚀
This is awesome.
You're an electric engineer!
I have an ipad but i am using ubuntu any recommendation for me to make the ipad as external monitor ? thanks
Sidecar, it’s built into MacOS starting with Catalina. You will need a compatible device: support.apple.com/en-us/HT210380
I am using ubuntu my friend :) i just have an ipad. just wondering i can also make it as extra screen :) thanks tho
Oh right, thats my bad for missing that. I found this project on GitHub but it does not look like it has been recently maintained: github.com/kbumsik/VirtScreen
There is also Duet display but I think they only offer support for Windows or Mac. Linux might just be left out in the cold on this one unfortunately. Good luck
My current setup:
Pretty cool, but those portrait-oriented monitors are still weird to me, can't get used to them)
My first setup
My neck hurts just seeing this 😂
What are the apps on the screen?
Neofetch of my servers and distros + gotop
Did you connect 3 screens directly to your laptop or did you use any dongle for that?
No, all screens are connected to my workstation
How much resolution per screen?
You forgot to mention that you use Arch.
this is what I like ;)
Remote Job 101
cute and neat!
As minimal as it could've gotten, nice.
I work at home and live alone, so instead of having a dinner table, I have my working space :)
Long live RGB. Cables are messy, I know
This is a kinda cluttered state, but loving the vertical monitor :)
Love the art behind your desk
Niice. Is that react native expo?
nothing fancy here. still saving up for a good table. this one is from a yard sale for $25. here's a list of gear i currently have in case anybody's interested:
Now stop watching shows and get back to working already..jk lol .. really clean setup
yes... 4hrs of 90s sitcoms would be enough of a break for today I guess 😜
and two and a half men! :D
p.s I have the same mat/mousepad
This is where I spend most of my working hours.
I use an HP Spectre notebook that sits in a custom docking station under the table on the left-hand side. I got so tired of plugging and unplugging that sucker all the time so I decided to create my own dock that connects the USB C docking station, the third screen via HDMI and the power cord when I slide it into the bay.
My webcam is located between the left and middle screen and has googly eyes, wears a hat and a mustache. Makes meetings super funny because even when they do not turn on their cameras I can still talk to them face to 'face'.
You have got a nice one there, 😍
here's mine. A bit untidy.😅😅
Are you flash 🏃🏻♂️
It's secret 🙄🙄
We had just moved in to our new house right before COVID quarantine started, so this has been an ongoing project 👍🏻
Loved the RGB led triangles, where can i get one of these?
Their called Nanoleafs. Available at Apple, Home Depot, online & now Costco
