A list of current hardware and software I currently use. I use a very minimalistic setup, so the list is short.


MacBook Pro M1 13" 2020 16GB. Simple, powerful, battery lasts most of the work day (if I'm not on calls).

27" LG UltraFine 5K IPS LED Monitor for MacBook Pro. It's a good monitor for coding and general work.

Keychron K3 Ultra-slim Wireless Mechanical Keyboard (V2). Tactile, mechanical and quiet.

Apple Magic Mouse 2. Not a good a mouse. I'm looking for another one.

iPad Air A14 10.9" 2021 256GB. It's my traveling and daily device. I use it with a Smart Cover.


Most of the software I use is the default that comes with macOS and iPadOS. They are good for what I need. On top of that, I install the following applications:


Auer Notes. A plain text, minimal and private note taking application that I'm beta testing. Highly recommended.

Auer Tasks. A plain text, minimal and private TODO manager application that I'm beta testing. Highly recommended as well.

Auer Jot. A brain dump collecting beast. Simple and out of the way. Go get it.

1Password. A password manager.

Little Snitch. It protects your data and prevents some security nightmares.

Stand. Sometimes I get too deep into working, this app gives me a break.

iTerm2. Best terminal out there.

Sublime Text. Powerfully well done coding beast.

Sleeve. Simple way to control music in your Mac.


1Password. A password manager.

Authy. 2FA codes app.
