In 2023, KBall interviewed me on JS Party about my developer tooling setup, and generally how I use my tools. I thought it would be beneficial to link up a more info that delves into my tools, how I use them, and how you can set up your tools as well.
You can listen to the show here.
This is a great overview of what typically goes into my daily workflow and the tools I use to get my job done. I absoluately believe that one should always use the right tool for the job, and that translates into my tools constantly changing as I learn, grow, and evolve! For example, the first tool I talk about in the episode is about the wonderful Kitty terminal emulator but in the months since this show has gone out, I have switched off that and over to WezTerm. As my tooling changes I tend to keep my /uses page up-to-date, so check there for the latest and greatest!
Of course, the major star of my tooling workflow is my dotfiles! With this
setup, I can go from new machine to ready to work in less than 20 minutes by relying on tools like
Homebrew, Git, and Neovim. I catalog my journey from Vim

I spoke to Josh Medeski about my tooling setup and how it’s changed over the years. It’s a fun show and definitely worth a watch.
It categorizes the changes that have happened since my somewhat popular video on the same subject from years earlier. You can watch that here.
