thanks for the support! It's currently number 7 on Amazon's best seller in "computers & technology", right below the bio of steve jobs and steven levy's google book. http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/books/886498/ref=pd_zg_...

I should have mentioned this up front on the sales page. Buyers can be issued a full refund if they don't find it helpful at all. I just added a note right below the "Buy" button.

Thanks, i should have included paypal as an option from the beginning. I just added a link to it.

-----


thanks for the feedback. Are you saying the preview isn't long enough or that the viewing format is poor on slideshare?

-----


I think you should add in a later chapter to the preview. For example, the chapter on Redis or Memcache. Basically, I want to know how in depth you explain each topic.

-----


Both!

I have been using it on a few small projects. Haven't ran into an issue yet and the setup has been really easy.

Do you have terminal access with your google version of chromebook?

Would be great to see a developer edition of chromebook with a native terminal app.

-----


There is no "Google version". Internally, we use the same SSH app that you would use, which works great. It's not a terminal: you can't do anything locally. But it's a perfectly decent developer environment as long as all you tools and editor are terminal or web applications (mine are).

They have been working on Secure Shell for a while. You reminded me and I just fired it up and it looks like there have been some improvements since it was first released.

You can download the ChromiumOS source code, build it, and install it on any available piece of hardware. (Though the hardware can't be too lightweight; I tried this on an Atom-based eeepc and it's just too slow. A virtual machine on a modern desktop works fine, though, if you just want to see what ChromeOS is like.)

You can also install your own build on an actual Chromebook, of course, but you lose automatic updates and the secure boot.

You might also consider porting the features you desire to a NaCl app, or contributing to NaCl to add things you need. (Emacs is on my todo list, though not in the near future.)

I thought Travis from Uber had a great talk because he showed the operations of his business. Zuck mentioned that companies can 80/20 somethings but have to be the best at some things to beat the competition. I think Uber's core is operational efficiency. They keep metrics on everything, they predict where riders are being underserved, not just where they are. I posted some more of my notes on http://tommy.chheng.com/2012/10/24/startup-school-2012-summa...

scala offers a syntax of programming similar to ruby especially in terms of collection operations. i found this to be a big win over java.

scala: List(54,2,46).filter(x => x == 2) ruby: [54,2,46].select{|x| x == 2}

-----


C#: new List<int>{54, 2, 46}.Where(x => x == 2)

This feature along with the single window view makes GIMP very usable on the mac.
