Apps, Tools, and Gear Roger Uses

People ask me what I use pretty regularly. This page collects all of that information to save everyone time.

Code Editor / Terminal

  • My preferred code editor is Visual Studio Code. I’ve used other editors, and they were all good at some of the things. VS Code is currently good at all of the things I need it to be good at.
  • I use iTerm2 for command line stuff. I’m not enough of a power user to notice the difference between terminals, so probably don’t listen to me about this.
  • I have a few custom things set up in my terminal.

Desktop Apps

  • I spend an unreasonable amount of time in Zoom. It’s really good at video calls and screen sharing.
  • I spend even more time in Slack, it's where work happens.
  • My browser is Google Chrome.

Desk setup

  • I have a adjustable-height desk
  • My chair of choice is a gaming chair.
  • I use a 16 inch MacBook Pro. I kinda like the touch bar.
  • I have a 32" Samsung curved monitor as a second monitor.
  • I use a standard Apple magic keyboard and trackpad. I tried to get into mechanical keyboards and just wasn’t able to do it.
