website design and development

Software I use, Languages and Frameworks I love and other things I recommend.

I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software, stay productive, or buy to fool myself into thinking I’m being productive when I’m really just procrastinating. Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff.

Development tools

  • PhpStorm

    PHPStorm is by far my favorite for full-blown development. It has the best integrated debugger I have used, a full suite of intuitive features, and most importantly - it's fast

  • TablePlus

    Great software for working with databases. Has saved me from building about a thousand admin interfaces for my various projects over the years.

  • GitHub

    With GitHub, I can collaborate better across various environments. It's made me twice as productive.

  • Laravel Forge

    Using Forge is an absolute no-brainer. It has every thing a Laravel dev needs to host their applications!

  • SplitBee

    I really like Splitbee. UI is incredibly smooth, installation is easy... So far, the best analytics tool I've tried!

Frameworks and Languages

  • Laravel

    Laravel makes building web apps exciting! It has also helped me to become a better developer 🤙

  • TailwindCSS

    Loved it the very moment I used it. I never want to write regular CSS again. Only @tailwindcss.

  • Alpine JS

    There is no better way to get a feel for what Alpine is and what it can do, than by seeing it for yourself

  • Vue JS

    Vue.js is a smart decision from both developer and product owner perspective


  • Figma

    I started using Figma as just a design tool, but now it’s become my virtual whiteboard. Never would have expected the collaboration features to be the real hook.

  • Adobe XD

    it's fast, simple, and creative. It's a wonderful prototyping and wire-framing tool

I'd be delighted to hear from you.
