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.


  • 14” MacBook Pro, M1 Pro, 16GB RAM (2021)

    I was using an Intel-based 16” MacBook Pro 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 my daily coding.

  • Apple Keyboard (on the go with 2nd screen)

    Easy to carry around, easy to use, the keys are just the right and it works well with my Mac setup.

  • Mechanical Keyboard from RedDragon

    If stuff gets more serious and I am gaming or at home then I am using this keyboard. It is a bit louder but it is a lot more fun to use.

Development tools

  • Visual Studio Code

    Do I have to add any additional infos here? In my opinion the way to go these days.

  • Postman

    Postman is a API platform for building and using APIs. It is a super powerful tool for testing and developing APIs and I use it regulary.

  • oh-my-zsh for Terminal

    I am using oh-my-zsh for my terminal. It is a great tool to customize your terminal and it is super easy to use. Makes working with the daily terminal a lot more fun.


  • Figma

    I am using Figma for all my design needs. It is a great tool for designing and prototyping. I am using it for nearly all my projects.


  • Pen and paper

    Oldschool but, I am using pen and paper for nearly everything. I am writing down my ideas, my tasks, my goals and so on. It is a great way to get things done and to stay focused.

  • Calendar

    From time to time I am using a calendar to plan my day. I am using it for my work and for my private life. It is a great way to stay organized and to get things done.

  • To Do List's (Apps, Notes or sometimes on Paper)

    No words needed here. Its my way to stay organized and to get things done.
