Just wanted to say I’ve been working through the curriculum in my spare time over the past 3 months and although I’m finding the Rails section very frustrating to get down, I am immensely grateful for the work that’s gone into this project and the community on the Discord.
I am currently looking at going digital nomad, and since I normally code on my Windows/Linux dual-boot desktop, I am trying to find a good laptop that I can use for coding. I think my budget is between $500-$1,000, but I can be flexible. I am open to trying Mac if it is worth the price tag, but I was planning on just installing Linux on a Windows laptop.
One question though. The lessons make it sound like you can only code on Linux or Mac OS, but this TechRadar list features an Asus Chromebook as #8 for best coding laptops. This is the laptop I currently have, but I’m not sure how you could do any back-end coding considering Chrome OS’s functionality. Could anyone explain this to me?
Anyway, looking forward to suggestions. Would be great if any experienced coders who work remotely can weigh in on how they do their setup. Thanks
N.B. - I saw this was posted before, but the last detailed post was in 2018, so I wanted to see what new options are out there.
