• All my web applications and almost all of my command line scripts run on node.js


  • JavaScript is the base-platform. I like to code in CoffeeScript and in other small languages that eventually compile down to JavaScript.


  • Easy persistence with json semantics that fits my program structure: No searches and no indices where I just have direct references.


  • Now, all my virtual machines are digital ocean droplets: easy to create, clone and destroy. SSD-fast. Affordable.


  • This is my language-of-choice for coding.


  • By now, almost all my text content is created in (some dialect of) markdown. It's easy to process and extend in javascript.


  • I used Rackspace virtual machines for all my dynamic web applications until switching to Digital ocean. I still like and recommend Rackspace.


  • Almost all of my data is backed up on git repositories on a remote gitolite server. I have full control.


  • "It just works (TM)"


  • I use the clound9 IDE mainly in my training courses: Students don't need to install anything on their Laptops to participate in the live exercises.


  • All my personal e-mail (inbound and outbound, personal, transactional and mailing lists) goes through mailgun.

    This gives me full control, especially about e-mail addresses: I assign different inbound e-mail addresses for different contacts, so that I can filter SPAM by just blocking the e-mail addresses that leaked out.


  • cross-browser DOM manipulation
