Off topic: About my workspace
Among all the great feedback I get about Task Rocket, I still get the occasional “what’s your workspace like?” or “what do you develop with?” queries.
So I thought I’d take a moment to share my set-up here once and for all, mostly so I can just send a link to the next person that asks 🙂
Most work is carried out on a four year old Sony VAIO laptop running Windows 8.1, connected to a 24″ LCD at 1920 x 1200. Nothing special here, but it’s way more capable than I require.
When I’m out and about I’ll switch to my Toshiba Chromebook (I’m a big advocate of Chromebooks – here’s proof) where I use the web based Codio IDE for development (well worth the low monthly subscription cost if you ask me).
- Graphics: Photoshop CS6
- Code editor: Atom in split-pane view and a handful of powerful packages
- Diff tool: Beyond Compare
- SASS processing: Prepros
- Version control: Source Tree connected to Bitbucket
- Web server: XAMMP
- Wire-framing: Balsmiq
- Database management: Webyog
- Documentation and office: Google Docs
- Project management: Task Rocket (naturally!)
