ChromeOS.dev is an an online hub for latest news about new products and features in Chrome OS. Google also puts samples of code from popular apps on the site and developers and Google employees can exchange ideas and tips. The site is also the official place where the layout and ux guidelines for Chrome OS will be placed.

Part of the site is for Linux developers, as Chrome OS can now run Linux apps as well. That section provides guides to edit the Linux terminal in the operating system, install Android Studio, and debug Android apps. There should also be tips in that section for developing Linux apps for Chrome OS at a later point, but since that feature is still in beta, that section isn’t there yet.

Google says it set up the site because the number of Chrome OS developers is growing and the number of Chromebooks sold is growing fast. The site is currently only available in English and Spanish. Other languages ​​will have to be added later.
