Nordstrom hmmmmmmm🤔

Are they giving out the new gen MacBooks (with USB c) or the old gen with magsafe? Just wondering as I have a lot of USB C gear.

Also is it possible to buy an office chair and expense it?

      Thanks for serious answer. I would get the chair myself but it would have been nice for it to be company paid.

    Yes to USB C, much to my chagrin as you then get issued a USB A yubi key.
    I think you can get an ergo chair with an ergo evaluation.

    • USB c yubis are on a private beta iirc
      Jul 11
    • Can’t you buy your own usb c yubi and self enroll it? They use the same driver/software...

    Get Linux laptop instead, you'll be developing on Linux anyway.

      That was standard issue for SDEs. At some orgs you can get a comparable Thinkpad (carbon or T series) and run Linux

      SDEs should get better HW. Talk to your boss.
