Configuring My Mac for Development
I recorded this video just before recording my course Hello Rails. I had actually forgotten I recorded it but figured I would share anyway! The subject of the video is me configuring my Mac for local development. I install ZSH, sublime themes, and more.
Tools of the trade:
- MacBook Pro 15": https://www.apple.com/macbook-pro/
- iTerm2: https://www.iterm2.com/
- Sublime Text 3: https://www.sublimetext.com/
- ZSH: https://ohmyz.sh/
- You can grab the theme I use for iTerm2 here: https://github.com/denysdovhan/spaceship-prompt
Nowadays, I have since switched to VS Code like a lot of other folks. I've been skeptical being so tied to Sublime Text but finally have it configured to my liking. I'll do another video on it perhaps soon with a combination of theme, configuration, and favorite extension talks. I hope you enjoy. If you have any questions feel free to comment or reach out on Twitter

Shameless plug time
I have a new course called Hello Rails. Hello Rails is modern course designed to help you start using and understanding Ruby on Rails fast. If you're a novice when it comes to Ruby or Ruby on Rails I invite you to check out the site. The course will be much like these builds but a super more in-depth version with more realistic goals and deliverables. View the course!
