It’s not a grab bag of programming languages, though speaking multiple languages is useful.

It’s not that shiny new M3 Max MacBook Pro maxed out in cores & RAM with the 8 TB internal drive either. (Want to see how quickly Apple turns this article from edgy to antique with their high speed rollout of Apple silicon?)

And it’s CERTAINLY not that that Samsung 49” curved monitor (which can double as a boat anchor in an emergency!)
