Whenever people ask what it is like to work from home, they often want to know what I have in my home office. I like to think I keep it pretty simple but once I am done listing all the items, I feel that it may not be too simple.
Obviously, the number one item is my Macbook. My Macbook setup is pretty low-key, I'd say:
- Chrome browser (Jira, local environment)
- Mail app
My Chromebook is my personal machine so I keep it pretty chill.
- personal Gmail
- Leisure Web Browsing
- Reddit (r/webdev, r/frontend, r/design_critiques)
- Smashing Magazine
I have a few notepads (typically used for lists), post-its (quick notes about a task), and Moleskine notebooks (for sketching). I have pencils but mostly use my Precise V5 - Extra Fine pens. I also have my whiteboard for when I really need to get a lot written down. This is incredibly nice to have when I am building a feature that contains smaller features that need to be spec'd out.
A few flash drives are kept in case I need to transfer anything but they don't go used much anymore with the cloud and all. I have an external hard drive that I use for backing up important things but that's about the only one that gets any love now.
Oh... and that's Mexican pesos... I kept forgetting where I placed it and decided to leave it in plain sight. I am going to Mexico in a couple weeks and definitely don't want to lose it again!
If you guys have any questions about anything, feel free to ask. I am also looking to buy a new desk too so any recommendations are welcome as well!
