Software I use, gadgets I love, and other things I recommend.

I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software, stay productive, or buy to fool myself into thinking I’m being productive when I’m really just procrastinating. Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff.


  • Huawei Matebook 14

    I was using a desktop prior to this and the difference is night and day. I’ve never heard the fans turn on a single time, even under the incredibly heavy loads I put it through with our various launch simulations.

Development tools

  • PHP Storm

    I don’t care if it’s missing all of the fancy IDE features everyone else relies on, PHP Storm is still the best text editor ever made.

  • Termius

    Incredible flexibility and cross-platform syncing for SSH keys, hosts and more!

  • DataGrip

    Great software for working with databases. Has saved me from building about a thousand admin interfaces for my various projects over the years.
