Stuff I use in my day to day work life.
I have more computers than is reasonable but I have two offices and I'm a software tester so, it makes sense to me.
MacBook Pro 15" daily work machine
MacBook Pro 13" backup for testing
MacBook Air 13" with some oooold OS for testing
MacMini devserver, CI, etc

Muvman - ergonomic stoolchair
headphones - still hunting for something that doesn't hurt my ears while I'm also wearing glasses
Computer glasses - seriously, protect your eyes!
Sad lamp - because Seattle
Rain Stand - laptop stand that swivels!
Stump Stand - device stand that can take a beating
Development is only part of my gig, I don't know what "real" devs do but it's working for me.
VSCode - I just use whatever my devs use, it's nice enough
Xcode - am i the only person out there that prefers it?
Android Studio - luv2 emulate crappy devices
Docker - do you really need to containerize it?
Jenkins - i know there are a million options out there but a local dockerized jenkins doing my bidding is awfully nice
Dash - docs Docs DOCS
ZSH/Oh my ZSH - pretty much only use the git aliases and shell themes
Yonce - who run the world ?
Vue - not to be needlessly contrarian to my React-heavy workplace but because fuck facebook
Tower - CLI is great but I spend a lot of time just browsing the commit history
Gcloud tools - plz don't make me learn AWS
Coda - for my old ass websites that are impervious to modern practices
CodeRunner - for local experiments because I'm always up in someone else's stack and codebase
WordPress - I haven't found a good static blog setup that can handle drafts well
Testing is basically taking all the dev stuff and then adding a ton of extra fun.
Literally every browser I can get my hands on
Choosy - is there an Ubuntu or Windows tool that does the same sweet jesus I need it.
VMWare - mostly just Fusion, even my scads of computers aren't enough
Postman - every gal needs to wrangle their API and getting your team to shell out $50 for Paw just ain't happening
Charles Proxy - luv 2 sniff ur traffic
Mongohub - for browsing data, which I do a lot
Skitch - the old one, before they ruined it, still works, still the best
Cypress - slightly less awful than dealing with Selenium, UI tests are still the devil
More AX tools than I can keep track of
Browserstack - browser testing is less important than it used to be but ya still gotta do it
Blisk.io - live reloading for mobile desktop makes my web local dev much easier
Lighthouse - accessibility NOW! also a pretty decent perf indicator
All these tools crossover the dev/test barrier and help keep me sane.
