You can now run Linux apps on Chrome OS

For the longest time, developers have taken Chrome OS machines and run tools like Crouton to turn them into Linux-based developer machines. That was a bit of a hassle, but it worked. But things are…

While this is pretty exciting, it still seems like Crouton would be needed to be able to really work on ChromeOS as a full development environment. For example, unless you used a browser-based dev environment, like AWS Cloud9 or shelled into a remote server, you’d probably still want to set up an environment on your local filesystem – which means installing software such as Node, PHP, Ruby, (whatever you work on these days).

Update: It’s worth noting that, while not having tested it out myself, it sounds like these Electron-based applications aren’t super performant on ChromeOS – at least not until they get GPU support.

None the less, it’s still pretty cool to see how Chromebooks are evolving!

San Diego – 2018

A couple months ago, I went on a work trip and got to go back to my favorite city. While most of our time was spent working at our AirBnB, we got to enjoy our evenings at some of my favorite places and restaurants. I even got to try a few new places that I never made it to while I lived there!

I flew in a couple of extra days early to hang out with my uncle and a couple of friends. But, as always, I wish I had more time!
