I am Chao, a software developer at Google in Waterloo, Ontario. I mostly work on open source. I used to work on Chromium—if you remember a version of Chrome that supported Windows Precision Touchpad gestures, I did that.
We love pets. We have two pets, ChiChi (dog) and Snow White (bunny).
I use a 2018 15-inch MacBook for work, but most my development work is on Linux in the cloud.
My 2020 home office setup for COVID:
I have a custom keycap set I designed myself for ErgoDox EZ, ChaosEZ: Dye PBT XDA keycap set for ErgoDox EZ.
I designed the keycap set based on my layout and made it compatible with some popular layouts on the ErgoDox EZ website. I am collecting feedback now and may start a group buy later.
My layout is a little weird. I place only left brackets on layer 0, as my IDE can complete the right brackets in most cases.
I actually want to use a lightweight setup and do the heavy computing in the cloud, eg. phone or Chromebook as terminal device. Currently, a Chromebook may be more like what I want, but it is still not easy for switching between work and personal accounts.
