"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." - Abraham Lincoln
+ I've been pleasantly surprised that web development is not overly taxing on system requirements. I'm still rocking a dual core 2010 MacBook Pro (albeit with 16 GB of RAM), and for these beginning stages I feel the machine is still an adequate partner for the road ahead.
+ I frequently do clean installs to start fresh and try new things. Here's the basic setup to kick off the Udacity Nanodegree and #100DaysOfCode reboot:
Notetaking: OneNote (prior Google Keep)
Text editor: VS Code (prior Atom)
Browser: FirefoxDeveloper Edition (prior Chrome)
Package manager: Homebrew
Terminal emulator: iTerm2 (prior Terminal.app)
+ Nothing fancy, and all available free of charge (thanks devs!).
