Although an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is not always essential for data science, building data products often requires a complete development environment and not just statistical analysis. In my quest to be able to perform all my web development and data science work on a chromebook, it is essential to have a development environment in the browser. Luckily for me and for all of you, there are a number of companies working on just that. Full disclosure: Some of the links below contain my referral codes.
