A list of my setup, gear and software

Here is what I use at my typical work day. This page is inspired by Wes Bos uses page.

My setup

I prefer JetBrains IDEs and I use Goland and webstorm for now with Gruvbox Theme. To test my APIs I use Postman — a popular platform for API development. I like simple and powerful deployment services like Netlify and for most pet projects it great but if I need full control cloud infrastructure I strongly recommend Linode — a cloud platform with Linux virtual machines, storage, networking, and developer tools. To boost my terminal I use iTerm2 and ohmyz.
