Uses This - Ian Mckay

Who are you, and what do you do?

I'm Ian Mckay, and I'm the Cloud Lead at Kablamo.

What hardware do you use?

I'm currently switching between a 24" M1 iMac with 16GB of RAM, and a 13" M1 MacBook Pro. The M1 chips are as good as people say!

For the iMac, I use a Magic Trackpad and everything else as standard. For the MacBook Pro, I'm using the integrated keyboard and trackpad.

Whether I'm on a Zoom/Teams/Huddle/Chime meeting, or simply rocking out to myself, I'll usually have my Bose QuietComfort 20's plugged in.

And what software?

Left-to-right in my dock:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mac default Terminal
  • Slack
  • Spotify
  • Visual Studio Code
  • Chime (don't ask!)
  • Paw
  • Mac default Terminal

What would be your dream setup?

I'm not usually too fussed about my setup, though I would like to eventually reach a stage where I'm using a completely cloud-hosted workstation. The realities of Australian internet make this pretty infeasible at the moment unfortunately.
