Editor

  • Visual Studio Code, for mostly everything.
  • Vim, if I need a lightweight editor.

Editor themes

  • Electron Higlighter.

Editor extensions

A small portion of it. These are my favorites.

  • Live Share, ideal for peer programming or solving problems remotely.
  • Color Highlight. CSS colors previewed in VSCode.
  • file-size. File size at the bottom bar.
  • Git Lens (et al). A must-have for Git repositories.
  • Image preview. See the preview of an image (even SVG) at the left side of your editor, saving you time.

Workstation

Desktop PC

  • I built a custom PC running Windows 11 with a AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU.
  • I opted for air cooling due its the durability, getting a Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler. 2 fans and 2 heatsinks, it keeps my CPU cool at ~45ºC.
  • As for graphics, I got a KFA NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super. A beast.
  • The motherboard is a MSI MPG x570 GAMING PRO CARBON WIFI ATX.
  • 1TB of space currently supplied by a Samsung 970 EVO M.2-2280 NVME.
  • 16GB of memory thanks to Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16.
  • Antec NX600 ATX Mid Tower Case.

Screens

  • Two Skyworth F27G1Q, one in portrait and the other in landscape modes. I got them from a gig, they're 27'', 1440p up to 165Hz, 10-bit color support and HDR 400.

Peripherics

  • Tonor TC30 mic with pop filter. Thanks to @nomedalavidadev and @infojobs :)
  • Razer Ornata Chroma, membrane keyboard with wrist rest.
  • Steelseries Rival 5 Destiny. Destiny has been one of the games I've played the most, so I got this special edition mouse.
  • The Great Wave off Kanagawa Mousepad. I love Hokusai art.
  • Steelseries Arctic Pro Wireless. It uses a custom DAC to transmit the audio to the headsets, although it supports 3.5mm and Bluetooth. It came with two batteries charged at the DAC station, as well as USB charging it directly, so in practice you never run out of battery. The audio quality is amazing and it has a built-in mic. Totally worth the price.

Desk table

  • IKEA RODULF, 140x80cm, with adjustable height.

Chair

  • Secret Lab Titan 2022 Evo. Very comfy chair with top quality materials for long sessions and doesn't use leather so it's breathable in summer.

Gadgets

  • Amazon Alexa Echo Dot 2nd Gen. This was a special edition with a backlight LED panel for time and weather, so it served both as an assistant and an alarm clock.
