Everyone always wants to know what sort of technology and gear other developers use - especially other developers!
The information on this page is not about what is the best or what sort of gear is necessary to be a Shopify Developer, rather, this is gear that I have found to be super helpful or even recommended to me by other merchants and developers.

Laptop - 2022 Apple MacBook Pro (16-inch, Apple M1, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD) [link]
This was a huge leap from my previous machine, a 2014 Macbook Pro. A Macbook isn't necessary to be a web developer, I know a lot of amazing devs running Windows or Linux, but in my experience moving from mainly using Windows laptops to a Mac OS machine it was a huge difference.
Microphone - Rode NT-USB USB Condenser Microphone [link]
I was really worried about the quality from a USB microphone but picked this up on a recommendation from another developer and was really impressed.
Keyboard - Keychron K4J2 Mechanical Keyboard [link]
First mechanical keyboard I've owned and a huge fan. Easy to setup with no soldering. Previously used Apple's Wireless Keyboard and worked great for me too, but this mechanical keyboard is a much better experience.
Headphones - Bose QuietComfort 45 [link]
These headphones are amazing and by far the most comfortable pair of headphones I've ever owned. I can wear them for hours comfortably but one of my favorite features is the ability to connect to multiple devices at a time. The sound quality, for listening and the microphone, are both stellar.
