I always loved to check other people's "uses" page and spent countless hours on uses.tech until I decided to put together my own "uses" page that covers the tools I use on a daily basis. I have a tendency of changing things up quite often, so I'll do my best to keep this page up to date. If there is something missing, shoot me a tweet at @mvpopuk
- Mac Mini 2020 - M1 chip, 8GB unified memory, 256GB SSD storage
I recently bought this machine to bust the M1 chip myth but, found out it's not a myth and I kind of fell in love with it so it became my main working station.
- MacBook PRO 2013 - Retina 15 inch, Quad-Core 2.3Ghz I7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD storage
As much as I like my M1 powered Mac Mini, I still love working on my old, battle-tested macbook.
I use it daily for my full-time job since we develop and maintain a Laravel + Vue app where I'm mostly doing PHP. I use a slightly modified version of the Night Owl theme paired with the JetBrains Mono font. I also bought Material UI because it lets me modify some parts of the IDE that I would normaly not be able to.
- Visual Studio Code
- Table Plus
I use Table Plus whenever I need to interact with a database through a graphical interface. I use it with the dark mode theme.
When working on my own side projects and I need to have a clear idea in mind of what I need to code, I always use Figma to create wireframes.
I use Notion mostly as my project manager for my side projects and whatnot and for when I need to write something and share that note with someone. I think it's a great app and I also have plan to play around with their newly released public API.
Great app, I use it whenever I feel the need of taking notes regardless of the topic.
