No I don’t think so.
You have to use cloud solution or remote to your Mac/PC.

What do you code?

I am a coder myself and some niche use cases are doable on device (vanilla react, node). For me as a web dev programming goes a bit further and needs stuff like on-device compilation which is where ugly iPadOS turns its head.

It’s doable with an external device such as a nas and blink for ssh. However its a massive productivity loss almost not worth it anymore since good chips are now also available for MacOS.
