Software I use and other things I recommend.
I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software, stay productive, or buy to fool myself into thinking I’m being productive when I’m really just procrastinating. Here’s a big list of all of my favorite stuff.
NextJS & React with TypeScript
Currently the best framework for building web Applications
Python, for its data science ecosystem and FastAPI
You can't just do everything in TypeScript. Heavy math stuff must be done there. proficient in numpy, pandas, jupyter, scikit-learn, scipy, matplotlib, seaborn, plotly, pyfolio, statsmodels, empyrical etc.
Best CSS Framework - Fight me!
Speed it up with Redis
Logtail, Logsnag & Sentry
Know what happens with your app. I am now wondering how I lived without sentry.
Other Web Libraries & Tools I love
React Query, PrismaJS, CoPilot.
Plausible, Ahrefs, Google Search Console for SEO
Track your website traffic and SEO
Notion, Loom, Tally.so
Productivity with the best UI/UX
Stripe for payment
Payment made easy, but competitors are catching up
Great software for working with databases. Has saved me from building about a thousand admin interfaces for my various projects over the years.
Hard to avoid, but I'm not a fan of the pricing model
Render & Vercel
Render is awesome but also inreasing prices. Vercel is just beyond and is pushing the web to the next level.
An indiehacker must store all of its hundreds of domains somewhere, right?
We started using Figma as just a design tool but now it’s become our virtual whiteboard for the entire company. Never would have expected the collaboration features to be the real hook.
How I got started with Website Design.
Stochastics, Statistics, Stochastic Analysis & Probability Theory
Love it, was my major in Uni.
Analysis & Linear Algebra
What I don't do on the job
Java, iOS, C#, C++, .NET, SAP, Testing, PHP
Since I get asked about freelancing sometimes, this is what I learnt but don't do on the job.
