Tools and tech we use
As tech geeks, we are always on the look out for the perfect tools of the trade. Here are our latest favourites.
We get most of our work done here. It’s always switched on, stable and reliable.
We self-host a lot of our stuff and it’s the most cost efficient way to build a high performance system. It’s so modular that we can experiment with different hardware configurations.
It's a straightforward and cost-effective cloud provider.
This is honest marketing. They truly make it cheap for anyone to own a domain, and even provide a domain name privacy guard for free.
NGINX is a widely used, so much so that it is the current industry standard for web servers.
We use Kubernetes to orchestrate all our deployments. We are completely obsessed by it.
Containers are awesome. We can share and run our code anywhere.
We use Jenkins to automate a lot of our work including CI/CD.
We use gitlab for our private projects.
It’s truly an all-in-one workspace. We use Notion for our team wiki, Agile sprints, project management and product documentation.
Miro is great for running ideation sessions in a big team. Thanks to their templates, we spend less time preparing, and more time thinking.
We use Concepts on our iPads to sketch and experiment with different system/ data architectures. It’s easy to iterate ideas on our own before discussing together.
We like the fact that Affinity Designer is a one-off purchase, for a tool we use sporadically for our assets. In fact, we bought both the Mac and iPad versions for that added convenience.
Let’s be real, not all of us are artists. That’s why we love Blush.
We appreciate how simple this mockup tool is. We use Excalidraw for most of our lo-fi wireframes and engineering diagrams.
Figma is where we do all our design heavy-lifting. It’s where we develop our hi-fi wireframes, prototypes, and collaborate with each other.
