As a reminder, Greg's Great Guides are intended for beginners and novice-level programmers only. Any type of structured engineering education would likely cover all of these topics in year one (or year zero!).

However, if you have a genuine interest in technology, and would like to spend your free time learning new stuff and building new things, then these guides are for you!

What are you waiting for? Get Going with Greg's Great Guides!

Packages, Libraries, Utilities, & Tools

This guide will walk you through the various installation and configuration steps to ensure that your machine is up to snuff. The packages, libraries, and other tools listed below are simply those that I have found helpful or otherwise valuable.

The last remaining chrome apps

The fact that I still love them seems to have almost zero impact on Google decision to slowly phase out "Chrome Apps".

  • August 2016 - Google announces that they will slowly be removing support for Chrome Apps on Windows, OS X, and Linux.
  • December 2017 - Google removes the "Apps" section from the Chrome Web Store.
  • November 2018 - Greg makes this list.

Anyways, here's some leftover URLs I've found.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
