My team recently had a discussion trying to agree on a few rules of thumb for our ambition level regarding code quality and automated tests for our legacy systems. These systems are business-critical, but planned to be replaced in a Big Bang fashion.
I recently bought a new machine, a MacBook Pro 16", and this is my initial configuration. I'm documenting this for my future self so I have something to cherry-pick from if I will ever configure a new Mac from scratch.
