Programmer, creative technologist
Who are you and what do you do?
I’m J.R. Ignacio, a computer programmer living in the Philippines with a lovely wife and daughter. I work at a creative agency, leading a small team of engineers, designers and product managers in designing, developing and deploying life-changing solutions.
What hardware do you use?
At work I use an ever reliable 13-inch Early 2015 MacBook Pro, the last one with an SD card slot, which I use with a Magic Mouse and an external Dell display hoooked on to it.
My personal machine is a 2018 MacBook Air. I love that it’s space gray and that it has Touch ID. However, I’m still trying to get used to the new butterfly keyboard. I’m still on the fence if I like it or not.
In my pocket most of the time, I have an iPhone XS paired with an Apple Watch (Series 1). I wanted to have the dual camera but as small as possible. I really wish they could put all that tech onto something as small as an iPhone SE, which is why I still use one for work. I also have a Redmi Go for when I want to dip into the average Android experience.
For listening to music, podcasts and video I usually have AirPods on. It’s become indispensable that I almost always never forget to bring it just like my phone. It’s just so easy to use it across devices. For more downtime listening or when I need to shut the world out, I put on my ATH-M50x headphones.
I’m currently contemplating if I should get an iPad since I now have a growing list of apps I want to try on a bigger touch screen.
And what software?
