Excel Style Calculator (Android/JS)

I'm looking to learn how to create an excel style calculator for Android or JavaScript where a user can enter in their own variables and those variables would be applied to a formula/function to spit out an answer. Where would the best place be to start learning this course of action? Already started the Android development track.

If you are want to do it in android follow through the android development track but the key thing is to learn any programming language (PHP, Ruby, Python etc.) and do it in that then it will be quite easy to port to other platform/languages.

Well if you want to create Android application then highly suggest to take the Android course track, of coarse there isn't going to be a tutorial on the specific project you want to create but you can obtain the main ideas/tools to create this.

Im assuming this will be some sort of Grid with number entries and depending on the row/column you want to create a formula which is totally doable in Android.

Android track + Java will get you there.
