I talked about Repl.it, its history, vision, and technology in a recent episode of Software Engineering Daily.
@amasad It's interesting you mentioned Stadia in the interview.
When Google announced Android Studio would be available on Chromebooks I assumed they were going to do a cloud version. Instead they went with Crostini, which is valuable in itself but probably suboptimal for Android development. And it feels legacy, more low-Earth orbit than moonshot.
The Google cloud would provide better performance, for example for compiling and building. And, given the Stadia infrastructure, even the dog-slow Android emulator would run decently.
