I recently succumbed to the pressure of coding with a Mac.
Everything seems pretty new here. Well Visual Studio Code, Chrome and some stuff remain the same.

But i need help with a few things. Like why do i need Brew?

As what it says in their homepage, it's the missing package manager for macOS.

For me though, it simplifies a lot of things, like for example when you need to install docker or other CLI tools that you need in your development.

You can easily install these tools thru brew install packageName
