These days, thanks to my busy work load and school schedule, I spend a majority of my week working in a library doing homework. Since, it’s ideal to work in groups to solve some of these impossible questions from profs who think they are smarter than you but they aren’t, I find Thode library a hallowed place of productivity of me. From the various smells and sights in the library to the crummy internet that keeps disconnecting my laptop, I feel I’m pretty good at adjusting to the various up and down’s of Thode.
There’s a lot of secrets I’ve discovered in the past semester to keep my sanity while doing all of this, though. Most of them don’t involve drugs, and some of them are even legal.
Stack Overflow reports that that more developers now use OS X than Linux or Windows as their primary OS, and that trend is slowly increasing as less than fewer developers will be using Windows next year and the year after that.
Personally, I think there is a slew of reasons, including its growth, but a larger part being the migration of developers from Windows to OSX who drink, breath, and live Starbucks for a living and deem themselves to be hipsters. Attracted by the UNIX subsystem under the hood, beautiful aesthetics, and straightforward usability approach, more and more coders, adopted OSX as their primary machine.
This migration wasn’t just for Objective-C coders, the language that OSX was primarily was written in. Languages such as Java, C/C++, Python, Ruby and other communities were slowly implemented into the OSX. Apple in newer builds, installed most of the languages, as default with the OSX and lowered the barriers for the technically inclined to code.
