Some would say that it is a long way from software engineering to journalism, others would correctly argue that it is a mere 10 metres according to the floor plan.During his first five years with CBS Interactive, Chris started his journalistic adventure in 2006 as the Editor of Builder AU after originally joining the company as a programmer.Leaving CBS Interactive in 2010 to follow his deep desire to study the snowdrifts and culinary delights of Canada, Chris based himself in Vancouver and paid for his new snowboarding and poutine cravings as a programmer for a lifestyle gaming startup.Chris returns to CBS in 2011 as the Editor of TechRepublic Australia determined to meld together his programming and journalistic tendencies once and for all.In his free time, Chris is often seen yelling at different operating systems for their own unique failures, avoiding the dreaded tech support calls from relatives, and conducting extensive studies of internets -- he claims he once read an entire one.
Yeah totally geeked out but this is a requirement of mine. It's why I use a Pocket PC (Professional, WM6.1) and not a Windows Phone. And why i will probably never run iOS. But then it's just Linux so any android device should be able to run gcc or any good java app like say Eclipse. OK you are wondering about the Pocket PC being able to write apps on but, there is a C# IDE, or python or Java (A none standard Java but still Java.)
