I spend most of my day in my workspace so I make sure everything I need is within reach of hand and comfortable to work on.
Macbook Pro 15”
Company provided laptop
Macbook Pro 13”
ViewSonic VX3276-2K-MHD 32” Monitor
This monitor is the best for me so far. Aside from using it as extended monitor to increase productivity, my family also use it for movie marathons and game nights.
HBADA Reclining Office Chair
I like lying on my back for a bit whenever I feel tired from coding but I’m afraid lying down on the bed would make me fall asleep. Having a reclining chair helps me rest without worrying of dozing off.
RAKK Lam-Ang Pro RGB Mechanical Keyboard (with Kailh Silent Box Brown Switches)
I don’t know anything about mechanical keyboard before, then my boyfriend gave me this. Me and my keyboard are now inseparable. It dramatically improved my typing speed and comfort since I can place it anywhere that allows me to straighten my back while working.
Apple Magic Mouse 1
What I love with Apple magic mouse is it allows you to swipe and to scroll like the Macbook trackpad. That makes work and shifting from different screens effortless. There’s also no question about the compatibility with Macbook. I just had to change batteries once in a while.
Airpods Gen 2
Airpods is a necessity for me since I get distracted easily and I had to plug my ears everytime I need to focus. Generally, I like compact and wireless (I wouldn't want to be tangled when I dance for fixing bugs) earphones. The feature that pauses music when you remove it from your ear is such a plus for me.
Keeps my laptop on eye level that prevents back pain.
Contains all the cords, adapters and chargers, some important documents, pen refills, sticky notes, powerbanks, external hard drive and Kindle.
Writing helps me to sort out my thoughts better so instead of typing my to-dos, I usually plot and write it on a notebook. I also like journaling to assess what I did right, what I did wrong and what I can improve for the next day or tasks.
2.6L Water Tumbler
I’m a heavy (water) drinker. I used to have 1 liter tumbler but I always had to refill it 2-3 times a day which is hassle specially when you’re in “the zone”. The water in this tumbler lasts for a day!
I hate coffee and tea stains on my mouse pad, Kurin just magically removes it.
Cappuccino and his seatmates
If there's a bug that I can't fix, sometimes they help me figuring it out.
Never stop learning. Mad scientist 🧪🛠💻 at Inbytes.dev.
My workspace is my playground. Having a large size table is a must so I can put more stuff on the table to tinker with. Things that i’ve learned when I was setting it up were the importance of making my workspace ergonomic to prevent body aches and make me more productive + cable management with magnets 😍.
