Previously I’ve gone through the steps I take to get a solid development machine setup. From the base operating system load, to the browser and basic IDEs I install. Now I’ve got more videos and the respective notes and details about what two language stacks I setup next; Python and Go.
In this video I put together some basic IDE’s and browsers I install. In the case of browsers that includes more than a few. For the case of IDE’s it’s my standard arsenal of Jetbrains IDE’s and Visual Studio Code. For the previous step in this series, check out the Base OS Load post.
When choosing an operating system to work with there are a number of factors to take into account. Some of these factors include; What language stack and tooling will you need to use?
What focus beyond software development will the machine have?
What apps and tooling do you already have?
