How to Make an iBeacon Out of a Raspberry Pi
Want a standalone iBeacon to use for development? Here's a procedure you can use to build your own for under $100. If you don't want to go to the trouble, we can ship you a pre-built development kit including everything below (except the cell phone charger -- you probably have one already!) ...

Just got a ChromeBook for upcoming travel. Can I survive without a "legacy" OS? Time to find out.

Preliminary report: abroad for a week and ChromeBook is going well. Only issue is lack of offline apps that support git so I had to put crouton (a chroot tool) so I can install native Linux cli tools. I know there are teams working on browser git so this probably won't be an issue in a few months. Lots of potential as a travel dev machine or even as a primary device by end of year. More reports over the course of the next few weeks!

Coding on #chromeos  is getting easier. Still not a replacement for crouton + awesome + vim... but then again, if you have lived in vim as long as I have nothing can replace it.
 
If you're eager to code efficiently on Chrome (OS), I'd recommend you check out the code_editor_dev branch of the Code Editor Chrome App available at https://github.com/GoogleChrome/code-editor-app/tree/code_editor_dev.
Once you've done that, load it as an unpacked extension in chrome://extensions and enable the chrome://flags/#enable-syncfs-directory-operation flag to play with it.

As you can see in the screenshots below, basic Git support has been recently added. It's still work in progress but we can pull, push, commit, branch and checkout from the new "git" menu button.

In the mean time, you can also try another Code Editor Chrome App named Tailor based on Adobe Brackets. It is all open sourced at https://github.com/ryanackley/tailor.
