Riot-punch's (Redditor) work desk setup, as a software engineer, is to have a layout that allows him to keep his laptops running and charged when doing testing and development, and keeping his Dell laptop up to date when he needs to travel as well.
The cube shelves next to his desk at the rear that are covered up contains his networking equipment and power strips. The cube shelves beneath his desk contain UPS. All wiring goes through the rear of the shelves, except for the network cables connected to the sockets in the wall.
His main goal is to keep his desk clutter-free, which allows him to be able to focus more on work.
