Is it ok to learn from an android tablet? Or is it best that I do my tracks on a desktop?

All I have is my nexus 7 tablet to work on my Tracks, so this is why I'm wondering. But I do have a desktop at my mom's house which is about 10 minutes away.

PS. There's no room for my desktop where I'm at.

Depends on which track you want to take.

You do Front end Web Development track on a tablet because you can write, HTML, CSS, JS & Sass by http://codepen.io although you'll almost certainly want to use a keyboard for the code challenges.

You can do most of the Web Design track, except for the Photoshop & Illustrator course on a tablet. You can do the Business track on a tablet.

YES! Thanks! is there any other editor besides codepen I can use? Just want to know my options.

Cool thanks! Might go with jsfiddle and check it out. Thanks again

Um. A bit concerned about the 3 different workspaces in the playgrounds. Would this interfere with how I do coding in the real world? How can I practice putting my code in the right order this way? Or it doesn't matter what order the code goes in?

It's a trivial difference to learn how to use link & script tags.

Oh ok. Well thanks
