I have a Chuwi Hi12, which is a dual boot Windows 10 / Android tablet.
Android for coding? Not a lot of fun. The keyboard is the main issue - if you use the swipe-to-type then it's predicts the wrong crap all the damn time, if you hunt and peck it still messes you up because it upper-cases and lower-cases at its own whim. So you end up working really slowly because you have to backtrack all the time and fix what you meant to type.

The windows side is OK , mostly - it's nowhere near as fast as a "proper" keyboard if only because it lacks tactile feedback, so if you have taken a touch typing course expect some pain. But ... Visual studio works on it, and not too badly. Slower compilation than my desktop, but you expect that, and most of your time is spent editing code anyway. The latest Windows 10 keyboard is a PITA to an extent - SHIFT, CTRL, and ALT no longer stay on while you hole the key down, so highlighting multiple words is frustrating to say the least.

But yes, you can code on a Windows 10 tablet pretty effectively.

There's a review of the WookieTab here: Take three tablets and call me in the morning - the Chuwi Hi12[^] - the Hi10 is much the same but with a lower display and slower processor IIRC.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
