I’m loving the Chrome Browser! That means I can now start to practice programming overnight using my current desktop. I can also go ahead an purchase the new chrome book for Christmas to replace this laptop. This is so very cool. I am literally over the moon right now. Can you even believe it. I wonder if I turn off my monitor off will it effect my remote desktop. Looks like no it doesn’t YIPPEE!. Now my only real challenge is that this screen is very small. I already don’t see that well. I have to figure that out. Then I believe all will be right in my world. I’m over the moon for real
I’m in full screen too. Now to see if I can get Xcode up and running. That should be a simple as this…I thought I already had a version of xCode on my system. I wonder did it update…again. Probably. This is so unbelievably cool! Wait until I tell Anika. I’m stoked right now. I’d tell her now but it’s like 1 am. I’m just happy I can make this happen. The only thing I have a problem with right this minute is how small the screen is. Meaning how small the words are. I really don’t see that well. I figured it out. Oh yeah! Now I’m cooking with grease.
To get it to full screen and with the text large enough for me to see it I had to change the viewing options on the blue tab on the top of the screen to ‘full screen’ and remove the shrink to fit option. This is the bomb. I can get so much done for real! Chrome is my new best friend.
I told The Boy this is better than getting a macbook because now I don’t have to worry about not actually using my mini which I was kind of feeling was happening. So now and once I get my Chrome book I can simply plug in whenever I want. Also, when I go to work I can simply turn on my computer in the event I decide to work on my programming skills from there. Then when I’m usually in the bed I can turn my computer off.
Now, I got this excited because I spent the day at Atlanta Code Camp 2014. And although I was tired from coming off a 12 hour overnight shift, it was amazing. Even though I didn’t get to go to the sessions I REALLY wanted because they were cancelled I got to speak to some empowering women that helped me feel really good about wanting to pursue this profession.
I can honestly say I’m an apple developer. I’ve got an account and everything, lol. I’m learning iOS, and I’ve had an app in the store for 11 months. Yet, I’ve decided to pursue the front end web development tract with a new vigor.
I am excited now. The Chrome book is so much lighter than my current laptop. The design is really cool too. I will, with a sleeve, be able to put that into my purse. So, now I’ll be looking at carrying my iPad Mini, My iPhone 5 or 6+ if I decide to go that route. And an 11” Chrome book. That one has WIFI and Verizon 4LTE for under $300. Plus the thing charges with a simple android charger. I mean it is created by Google so why wouldn’t it.
Wait a minute, Yosemite is available? I’ve got more research to do but in the short term? I’m feeling fine. Ok. enough gloat, more work!
In the immortal words of my alma mater — Let’s get to work!
