My Setup

Hello Everyone, 
I hope this blog post finds you all well and ready to take on 2013. While waiting for my next theme “Imprint” to come out (Im aiming for the 15th) I thought I would write a little post about my ever growing setup at Pressure Designs HQ. I personally find it very interesting to see what other equipment people are using so I thought I would share mine. 

My Desk

This is my main workstation where I create all of my products and plan new ones. Picked a great time to take the photo as my next semester at college starts next week and I can guarantee it won’t look like this.  Included in the photo is 

  • iMac 21 Inch 2008
  • External  AOC 21 Inch external Monitor 
  • Aspire One netbook running Windows 7
  • iPad 3 
  • iPhone 4S 
  • Whiteboard 
  • Stitch Toy (To watch me work) 
I just recently got the second monitor and I am now wondering how I ever managed without it, my workflow is so much more organized and much faster. With the new monitor I received a nice new desk for christmas, I don’t know what it is but I like to have a glass desk. Only downside is it shows off all the dirt and fingerprints. 
Books

I like to read a lot of coding books and also like to have them on reference for when I am working, here is a list of all the books I won and use regularly. 

  • Javascript and jQuery- The missing Manual
  • JavaScrip- Eighth Edition 
  • HTML & CSS- Design and Build websites 
  • Beginning iOS 5 Application Development 
  • Objective-C for absolute beginners 
  • Head First C#
  • Games and Graphics in C++
  • Starting out with C++
As you can see I have a lot outside of the theme/stack development area but I am a major in Computer Science at College so the c language is used quite a bit. I have also been working on an iOS Application for a couple of months but I find myself lending much more time to rapidweaver projects so thats just a hobby at the moment. I am extremely interested in great book reads so I can expand my knowledge further so if you have a book recommendation please shoot it over to me (Twitter, Facebook, email etc) I would love to hear it. 
I hope this interested you in some way, “Imprint” is tentatively scheduled for a release of the 15th Jan along with a stack or two in the following week. 
Happy (Late) New Year!
George
