Developer/Engineer daily tools must have

I’m not going to include something very obvious, like a laptop, the internet those kinds of things.

  1. A sense of humor your deadline might cause you aged 10 years.
  2. Notebook or whiteboard: Not all companies are nice enough to provide a whiteboard for each developer to map their idea and logic out, If so do it on your Letter printing paper or notebook.
  3. TEA/COFFEE/Lacroix: Personally not a big fan of Lacroix, not sure why everyone loves it so much. I’m a tea person, keep yourself hydrated is important because you use a lot of brainpower, you might evaporate to the air if you not. 🙂
  4. Stress ball: I don’t have one, but I have magnetic rocks, a punching bag near me. so I don’t smash the computer screen and yell “WHY THIS IS NOT WORKING” (See picture and links below)
  5. Music: I absolutely love Jazz or study channel have 24 hours live music

6. Exercise: Keep a reminder to walk around every hour, and stretch your arm, because you need it, believe me!

Below are the Amazon affiliate products I purchased for myself, besides the stress ball one.
