NZXT Windows PCGamedevelopment happens almost exclusively on Windows, so I have a relatively powerful Windows PC from NZXT that I use for my day to day work.
- AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3600
Dell S2716DG MonitorThis is my main monitor. It's a 1440p 144Hz monitor that I use for everything. It's not really anything special, but gets the job done.
ASUS VN247 Monitor x2I originally bought three of these monitors almost 10 years ago when I wanted to try out a triple monitor setup for WoW. At the time these monitors offered what was considered a very thin bezel. I've since replaced one of them with a 4K monitor (see above), but I still use the other two for side monitors in a triple monitor setup.
Ducky Shine 7 Gunmetal RGB LED Double Shot PBT Mechanical KeyboardThis keyboard is great. I originally bought a different Ducky keyboard, but then I dropped my absolute brick of a phone on the keyboard and it snapped one of the keys off.
Razer Naga Chroma MouseI've used Razer mice and keyboards for a few years. I'm probably done buying their keyboards, but I'll probably stick with their mice for a while, or at least until I find something better. The extra buttons on the side come in handy when gaming, which I'm still doing a fair bit of.
Logitech c92 Pro Stream WebcamThis is the same webcam that pretty much everyone else bought when they started working from home during the pandemic. It seems to be a good camera and sufficiently lets me show my cats while in meetings.
BenQ ScreenBar Plus e-Reading LED Computer Monitor LightThis desk lamp has been awsesome. 10/10 would buy again. Seems to help with eyestrain and lights up what has historically been a very dim and dark desk, and I don't have much natural light that lands on my desk.
Herman Miller Aeron ChairI've been using a Herman Miller Aeron Chair for a few years now. Have tried a bunch of other chairs but this is what i'm using right now. I would be interested in trying a Steelcase Gesture chair some day.
Visual Studio CodeDepending on the project, I use either VS Code or one of the Jetbrains IDEs. There are small difference between the two that I prefer in each, but I kind of hop back and forth between them depending on what I'm doing.
Jetbrains IntellijI use the full suite of Jetbrains IDE products, and if I had to pick a single IDE it would probably be Intellij. However, like I stated above I sometimes jump back and forth between this and VS Code.
PhotoshopI've been using photoshop for a number of years, originally to design websites when I was in highschool. I wouldn't say I'm good in any way, but I've found anytime I don't have a Photoshop license I end up missing it, so here we are.
Davinci ResolveI'm even worse at video editing than I am photo/image editing, but when I do have to edit a video I've been trying to learn Davinci Resolve.
ForLaterThis is actually a tool that I built for myself. I wanted a way to save links to articles, videos, etc. that I wanted to read/watch later. I built a simple web app that allows me to save these links, often directly from my phone, and then I can access them from any device.
JiraI've had a Atlassian/Jira account for a number of years. Jira is my preferred project management/tracking solution, however I arguebly have not tried many other solutions.
TickTickA friend put me onto TickTick for daily task/todo list tracking. It gets the job done.
GreenshotGreenshot is a great little Windows utility for taking screenshots. I use it all the time when creating tutorials or trying to explain something to someone.
ScreenToGifDoes exactly what the name implies... allows you to record your screen and save it as a gif. I started using ScreenToGif to record bugs in software and its been very helpful.
