This is my personal setup I use for work, fun, and everything in-between.

Setup Angle One
Setup Angle Two

  1. Dyson lightcycle Morph Light - This is a fantastic light. From the color temperature adjustments to the sunrise-to-sunset settings every aspect of this lamp is well thoughtout.
  2. LG 27 Inch UltraFine 5K Display - Great monitor for Macbook Pro users with USB-C looking for HiDPI pixel scaling. You can use a single cable to connect the monitor to your mac, resulting in power as well as Thunderbolt 3 display connection. I have my keyboard plugged into the monitor with 2 ports to spare, this will allow me to sit-down and simply plug in a single cable and I'm ready to go!
  3. Apple 16 Inch Macbook Pro - Could not be happier with my 16 inch Spacegray Macbook Pro. 16GB of ram gives me a ton of flexability with running Docker containers and intensive dev work, while the 1TB SSD is perfect for all my data.
  4. mStand by Rain Design Simple but high functioning laptop stand in Spacegray to match my Mac. Has a nice cable hole at the bottom for my single USB-C connection to my monitor setup.
  5. Small Dark Gray Wool Deskpad Lovely deskpad that's handmade from Grovemade. Great company out of Portland, OR. They offer several sizes and colors so be sure to check out the store.
  6. Code V3 87-Key Illuminated Mechanical Keyboard Coding is all about productivity, and part of that includes the quality of your display, keyboard, and mouse. I'm loving my CODE keyboard. I got the Cherry MX Clear keys, they offer a good balance of feedback when I type, and I am not bothered by the noise.
  7. Logitech MX Master 3 Mouse Great mouse for multi-machine users. Using the memory setting I can switch bluetooth connections in a fraction of a second. I simple swap my personal Macbook Pro for my work Macbook Pro and switch profiles on the mouse and boom, I'm ready to go. Also, the battery on the MX Mouse lasts for two months!
  8. Kelvar Lightning Cable USB-C Having been super frustrated with low-quality USB-C/USB-A to Lightning cables I found Nomad Goods's braided / kelvar cable. Including metal connectors and a 5-year warranty.
  9. Laura SOHO Premier Ribbed Management Chair This chair is absolutely amazing. It is made within design and quality specs of Herman Miller at a tenth of the cost. I recommend going with the tan or black Italian Leather.
  10. Fully Jarvis Standing Desk It's hard to call yourself a programmer in 2020 without a standing desk. I love Fully desks and this is my second one. You can now get an Alloy finish that gives it a nice industrial feel.
