    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with the nanodegrees offered by udacity and whether they think it is possible to follow it purely on an iPad? I'm hoping to do the data analyst nanodegree and was wondering if apps like coda are enough to satisfy their requirements. Thanks in advance!

    I did.. It's just that some programs require extra software requirements that normally say, pc or Mac.
    • You have access to a computer with a broadband connection, on which you’ll install a professional code/text editor (ie. Sublime Text or Atom) and programming languages like Python and R and associating data science libraries.
    This is from the data analyst page. I know that this would ideally mean computer, but just wondering if anyone knows or tried it with an iPad.

    I'm more concerned about their requirements for a desktop browser.

    That sounds to me like a desktop browser is required to do their coursework. That some of their coursework may be doable from their mobile app, but not all. That'd be the first thing I'd check before tying to figure out whether any of the iOS coding apps are robust enough to fulfill their course requirements.

    EDIT:
    I just found they have this readiness assessment thing.

    See if you can work through that from an iPad. Any iPad will do, as the iPad Pro is just a bigger iPad, so if it works on a regular iPad, it'll work on the Pro.
