Can You Write Codes With A Tablet Instead Of A Laptop? by ThatWriterBoy(m): 12:36pm On Feb 11
Good afternoon everyone. I just started to learn to code a few months ago. I have been using my phone since I started with Sololearn, but now I want to get a laptop to continue.
However, I have been wondering if it's possible for me to get a tablet instead and write my codes there.
Are there any disadvantages? Please enlighten me.

If you have the resources go for a laptop. Even though you can write codes on a tablet sooner or later you will need a laptop. Coding on a tablet can be very frustrating most times. I recommend buying a laptop.

You can't install an IDE on a tablet and you need an IDE for any serious coding.

of course you can code using a tablet but there is a limit to what you can do.

For example you can code HTML/CSS, PHP Wordpress easily using a tablet once you download the appropriate apps.

Since it's a tablet you can get a keyboard and mouse for it and enjoy your coding. I would recommend using termux.

Not that you can't code on tablets, but your work would be limited.
You will of course need to have:

Robust IDE with code completion
External Keyboard

However, to experience full fledged coding and compiling, you'll need a laptop, Definitely.

Except you're coding html.... grin

Get a laptop, simple
Re: Can You Write Codes With A Tablet Instead Of A Laptop? by Basiljoe: 2:11pm On Feb 15
Depends on what you're coding/building, if you're building/scripting simple web apps, sites and templates, a tablet might be capable.

However, a tablet is an underpowered device for developing complex applications and video games.

An i7 laptop is more suitable.

You could have a tablet on the side but you need at least a laptop.

Re: Can You Write Codes With A Tablet Instead Of A Laptop? by Trapheal1: 2:13pm On Feb 15
Coding with one screen sef with laptop is not sufficient, unless you are practicing... Doing jobs or writing programs would be too much stress especially working with big files

Please get a laptop and ensure the speed and RAM is top notch.
Also, don't use sololearn. I will recommend you use Codecademy.

I work in Lagos but I was just told by the company I work for to transfer to Enugu. I just payed my rent 2 weeks ago and get the news of the transfer today. The house is a self contained apartment(toilet, bathroom and kitchen ensuite)at Onipanu just after Palmgrove. I need someone who is interested in the apartment to let me know. Pay me the difference and I move. I'll also introduce you to my landlord. Reach me at rowlandjumbo@gmail.com if interested.

Tablets usuly carry a phones operating system

So a tablet will install OS while a laptop will install macOS for example


Code development software is usually hosted on desktop/laptop operating systems like Linux. Microsoft and macOS
