Hey folks. Here’s some images of my home and work office setup. They’re very similar in both places and have taken some time to refine. The 2017 MacBook Pro 13 Inch is my main machine. This is my one device which holds my entire digital life both personal and professional! I use Duet Display to utilise my 6th Gen iPad as an additional display.
Working as an IT Manager and Microsoft Trainer I need to work heavily with and in Windows networks so having a Mac can sometimes be tricky but with VMWare fusion and a range of Virtual Machines I can be quite productive.
Some of the apps I use include…
Todoist - Task & Project management
Adobe Creative Suite - I also do digital design work which is all done in Adobe Creative Cloud
VMWare Fusion - for Virtual Machines
Microsoft Office - for Work things!
GNS3 - Cisco Virtual Networking emulation
Microsoft Remote Desktop - To get to my servers
MindNode - Mind mapping when planning new projects or working through something tricky
1Password - for all my work and personal passwords
Termius - for telnet and SSH
Keynote - sometimes used for project planning
Sketch - for designing system icons
Although most IT Pro’s like multiple monitors, I’ve never been too keen. Having the iPad down near the keyboard is useful though if I’m working on a complex project or if I’m creating some training resources/studying.
