The Tools I Use to Work

These are some of the tools I use to communicate with workmates and clients and to help me organise my work.

Slack is a business communication platform that reduces unnecessary e-mails drastically. It helps you communicate with your workmates or clients much easier while keeping your mailbox tidy.

Microsoft Teams

I’ve used Microsoft Teams with some companies and clients I’ve worked for. It was created to compete with Slack, offering messaging, video calls and also offers integration with apps like Word or Excel. I prefer using Slack, but Microsoft Teams is also a good choice for companies.


Trello is a web-based app used for project management. It allows you to create boards, create columns and tasks. Then, you can move the tasks from one column to another: to do, in progress, done.
It’s a really useful tool as it gives you an immediate overview of a project and helps you organise it better.


I’m a Mac user, so if you use another operating system, you can find other alternatives like Thunderbird.


Evernote is an app for note-taking, task management and organising. I use it mainly to create notes about the work I do, things I need to remember etc, but always related to work. It has a free plan that offers what I need.

I write articles in English and Spanish, mostly about programming, technology, travel, money, investing. You can find me here:
