Ivan's Workspace Tour

Workspace Items


  • Xcode

  • ROON + Tidal (for managing my CD collection and music streaming)

What is the most useful item in your workspace?

It's got to be the Logitech MX Master 3 mouse. I've been using it for both work and personal stuff for about five years now. It surely needs an upgrade.

How do you spark creativity?

By looking around and noticing things that annoy me or don't work well, whether it's something that looks bad or functions poorly. Each frustrating thing I see becomes motivation for me to come up with creative new solutions to fix or improve it. The more irritating things catch my attention, the more possibilities for creative problem-solving open up. I’m also inspired by what Dieter Rams and Paul Rand have accomplished with their work.

What has been the biggest challenge so far in building StellarJet?

While the app's development has been smooth cosmic sailing so far, a challenge definitely awaits - combining multiple data sources with my own custom elements to create a rich, more detailed and data-driven perspective on even the most routine rocket launch operations. I will soon be posting the progress on social, so stay tuned.
