I’ve been chugging along for about a month learning as I go. I m doing everything on an acer 11 chromebook. i have it hooked up to a 55in tv so screen is good. as i get deeper into this though im realizing i need to use resources that arent readily available to me. such as git node.js etc. i played around with codeanywhere just on a free trial and was able to use git (barely:noob) but i did move my stuff from codepen to github.
i guess my question is. is codeanywhere/cloud9 worth purchasing. i have read alot of people with chromebooks go in dev mode and install linux. i dont think i have enough experience for that and im learning enough new material as is. i pick things up quick but i have only moved past binge watching netflix in last month.
so realistically. to be a legit web developer that can work a full stack i need to get codeanywhere? or do i upgrade to a mac/pc. i love this chromebook and would prefer to keep it or even get that new samsung chromebook. idk. does anyone else do their thing primarily on a chromebook? are there any drawbacks to codeanywhere? when is a good time to invest… as in at what skill level. thanks.
