First, I’m making this so that I can share the lessons learned when programming the Go1 from the Teacher/Student perspective and also from the far less knowledgeable perspective.
First thing to add to the list. And this might be blisteringly obvious to everyone but me…
When working with Chromebooks and using the Crostini Linux virtual machine, you must install a newer version of Node than the default Debian install.
Also because some schools will have github blocked and thus cannot install NVM, the commands to install a particular version of Node higher than the default is:
curl -fsSL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_18.x | bash - &&\ apt-get install -y nodejs
Then they can use the await commands and program using VSCode on a Chromebook.
