What I Use

I'm hoping to keep this as up to date as possible. If you have suggestions, contact me on Twitter!

Editor

  • Visual Studio Code - Is there another editor anymore? 😀 Seriously though, there isn't anything better out there. At this point, I'm still using the built in Dark Theme and default font.
  • Visual Studio 2019 (for Windows) - At this point, the only reason I use it is for my work in our ChMS, since it runs on a classic Microsoft stack. There isn't anything wrong with it, per se.
  • Visual Studio 2019 for Mac - I still prefer using this for Xamarin work. The recent updates to the XAML editor have made it a much nicer experience.

Everyday Apps

  • Apollo - A Reddit Client that is far better than the first party one.
  • Chrome - It's Chrome. You have to know what this is already.
  • Dashlane - Excellent password manager. Use it for personal and work and everything stays separated.
  • Kindle - Still the best way to carry hundreds of 1000-page computer books with you at all times.
  • Pocket - Easy way to store links for later consumption.
  • Tweetbot - Another third party app that blows away a platform's first pary app. This time for Twitter.

Chrome Extensions

  • Dashlane - Used to integrate Dashlane and websites easily.
  • OctoLinker - All files, referenced in code, in your GitHub repositories are now links to the files!
  • Octotree - A great file explorer add-on to GitHub.
  • Save to Pocket - Easily send links to Pocket.
  • uBlock Origin - Best ad-blocker out there.
