    T100 for development

    Having just done a system cleanup and freed up about 7 GB of space on my C: drive, I installed the Android Development Toolkit bundle (on the D: drive) and Java 7 (C: drive) plus the Genymotion emulator (C: drive) and it runs really smoothly. What's more, using the T100's touch screen to control the Android emulator is great. Obviously it isn't as fast as a real device but it's easily fast enough for app testing and development. And, equally obviously, quite a bit faster for native Java development.

    Looking forward to spending a serious amount of time out in the sunshine this summer.

    I suggest you take an umbrella. Screen viewing is less than ideal in the hit sunshine!

    Hey I use mine for the exact same reason, so far I've found that I can't run the AVD emulator that comes bundled with the SDK but I can use Genymotion which is odd. Either way, the T100 is great for development on the go from my experience

    I've installed PHPStorm and have been using it for web development and it works surprisingly well. PHPStorm has an excellent fullscreen mode, I don't feel like the screen is cramped at all. The only annoying thing is that you can't scroll the source via the touchscreen (selects text when you try), but supposedly they're working on touch-friendliness for a future release.

    Too bad that the browser debugging tools have such tiny buttons and click targets. Anything I do in chrome's inspector requires using the trackpad, which as we all know isn't exactly one of the T100 hardware's strengths.

    Yes. One of the nice things about Eclipse (yes, there are some!) is that Ctrl+M will maximize whichever pane you're working in, and pressing again restores it. And Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn move you to the previous and next editor windows. Ideal for working on small screens.

    The scroll bars should work, but they're not a large target if you have fat finger syndrome.

    I use a Colt fibre-tipped stylus for clicking tiny targets, but it's a pain - especially for a touch-typist - to have to keep picking it up and putting it down again. I guess I could hold it in my mouth and just dribble.
