Default Writing code WITH Transformer?

Hi guys,
I'm a mechanical engineering major at UCSD and I'm taking some classes that require programming. I really really love using my tablet more than I do my laptop. Battery life is better, streamlined applications run better, the OS just seems "cleaner".

That being said there are some functions that my laptop does considerably well that my Transformer can't.

I am taking a class in AutoCAD. Now I know AutoCAD is a very complex application, not easily usable on "cell phone" hardware, but is there some kind of CAD application on Android worth using?

Also, I have to write code for C++, Java and MATLab. Is there a notepad editor similar to Notepad++ on Android?

aide is a great tool for programming on the tf101 its on the market and lets you build and compile and test apps on the tf

Currently on aokp hoping build 32 will convince me to stay

Kernel = Dorimanx Always

Stock base Rom... reason? battery life lol Unless LG doesn't update to Android L then AOSP all the way.

My own personal re-worked flavour of AOKP built from source a lot of tweaking.
