So this is another article that I’m doing for myself and also to be transparent. I don’t change my computer often (My old computer was a mid-2011 MacBook Air!) and I usually use the opportunity to review my workflow. This time around I wanted to document the process in some way.
Since everything is still quite fresh, I can walk through my thought process. I think it’s useful when you’re trying to make decisions whether this tool is useful for you or not. We don’t all work the same way so my workflow might not fit yours.
It’s also worth pointing out that this is going to be macOS centric. I haven’t developed on another operating system in a long time. So you might not get as much out of this if you’re using Windows or Linux.
Alright, so you have your new MacBook Pro box in front of you! You’re ready to get going. You unbox it, boot it up, set up your account for the first time and get to the desktop screen. What’s next!?
