Can Windows 10 on ARM devices run Visual Studio or VS Code?

Windows Central Question

Hi all,

I realize that this seems like a silly question, but bear with me until the end:
1. Can you even install Visual Studio onto a Windows on ARM device, like the new Lenovo C630? If so, does it even compile code?
2. If not Visual Studio, how about VS code?
3. How is the performance? Obviously because it would be an emulation I'm not expecting anything great, but is it usable?

I've been looking for an excuse to jump into Windows 10 on ARM, but since I don't really do many consumery things that require a laptop I am wondering if I could use it for coding on the go.
