Using Chromebook. Chrome Javascript Console? Workspaces?

Hey folks,

Anyone else out there learning on a Chromebook?

What have you found best to follow along with Jim Hoskins Getting Started Programming series?

I noticed there's a JS option in Workspaces, and I found the Javascript Console in Chrome (though I haven't figured it out yet).

What to do what will help me learn best, and then start putting the stuff into action.

Thanks a lot,

I'm not using a Chromebook, but use Chrome itself for all my development work. I find detaching the developers window works best. You will find these tools built into Chrome will be your best friend. Treehouse has a course called Website Optimization that takes you through these tools. It's worth it early on.

You are asking the right questions :-)

Thanks Lonnie!

I'll check out Nick's course.

As you probably know, Chromebooks are somewhat limited, so hopefully someone who's using one will pop up, as well.

I have an imac, but it would require me to be at the desk, and this thing is just so smooth...
