“I don’t think any serious programming can be done on a laptop with less than 4GB of RAM.”
Hassan Abudu

Text editor, web browser, and a **terminal**. The terminal to start your local development server, that sometimes split into panes or windows so that you could fire up webpack dev server and a backend framework at the same time that pick up tests immediately after any code change, not to mention another window or pane to monitor the cloud server or docker containers. If you’re not terminal-centric enough then you’ll need some database GUI clients to view your data or run some queries. Sometimes you’ll come across JavaScript / UI libraries that fries the RAM and motherboard and the ventilation fan roars like crazy. 8GB MacBook is barely enough for my use case.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
