Let’s talk monitors. Is that ok at the watercooler, @plexus? Or should all posts here be Clojure specific?
I have a love/hate-relationship with monitors. I used to love coding on only a laptop (Retina) screen, because you can only focus on so much at the same time. But when developing web applications, it’s not sufficient, because you want to have the console open and view the page like other people do on bigger monitors. Now I usually only use one monitor + my laptop screen.
I’ve had issues with a 25" 2560x1440 Dell monitor: the fonts were too small for me to read and MacOS did not support font scaling like in Windows. I sold it.
Now I’m using a 24" FullHD Dell (1920x1200) monitor. It’s ok, but recently I read about eye strain and pulse width modulation which is used in older monitors to dim the screen. It’s likely that my monitor uses it. Maybe it’s better to look for alternatives.
What are your favorite monitors to do Clojure coding on MacOS? Do you use a 4K monitor? Is it really an improvement over FullHD for day to day coding?
