AskDZ: What is Your Dev Setup/Environment?

· Java Zone

The Java Zone is brought to you in partnership with JetBrains.  Learn more about Kotlin, a new programming language designed by JetBrains to solve problems that software developers face every day.

We were arguing lately about the best hardware and tools for coding. Some insisted that MacBook Pros are the best machines, but some prefer Linux (including Ubuntu and Mint) on a good old ThinkPad. Everyone had their favorite text editor, with Sublime Text a popular choice, as well as their favorite IDE. 

But it goes beyond that, too. Some preferred coding at a standing desk, or in a particular locale like a coffee shop. Some had favorite music they liked to listen to, or a favorite ergonomic chair.

So what's yours? What kind of hardware, tooling, and dev environment do you use? Do you code sitting, standing, laying down, listening to music? Do you have any coding quirks or lucky charms?




The Java Zone is brought to you in partnership with JetBrains.  Discover how powerful static code analysis and ergonomic design make development not only productive but also an enjoyable experience.
