As a full-stack engineer, I use a lot of different technologies, from the highest level to the lowest level.
Here’s some of the technologies I prefer for work and play: http://stackshare.io/EricTendian/eric-s-stack
Besides software, I use the following hardware:
- Lenovo ThinkPad T430 - My workhorse computer. Gets the job done. Somewhat heavy, worn-down battery life around 4hrs. Computer of choice for any code I’m writing. Dual-booting Ubuntu 15.10 and Windows 8.1, both on an SSD.
- Samsung Galaxy S4 - I bring this wherever I go. Has got free 4G LTE service (thanks Freedompop) and enough space to store a couple dozen apps, no music. Has a pretty good camera too. Custom Android ROM.
- iPad Mini (1st gen) - For watching videos or doing other tasks that need a screen larger than a phone. Pretty slow, can only have 2-3 apps open max.
- ASUS Chromebook Flip - The computer I bring to school and carry around the house. I can do basic development work on here, and use VNC to connect to my other computers. Runs Chrome OS (with Crouton, Ubuntu 14.04 chroot)
- Custom-built desktop (originally for gaming, built in 2009) - operates as a server, streaming police scanner radio. Occasionally I use it for gaming. Runs Windows 7.
