Learning how to program - Which software to use?


I'm currently learning Programing Logic, and then I'll learn how to program in C# or Java. I still haven't decided what to create, but it will either be a program for Linux or an app for SmartPhones.

Where can I create the source code? Can Kwrite do it?
Where can I compile the source code? And what if I need a separate API or library, how can I add them to my program?

Regards,
Amarildo

For java, jedit (itself written in java) is a good candidate, there are plenty of others. I like geany, that has syntax highlighting for both JAVA and C# and that can be seen as an IDE. if you want to use a KDE app, prefer kate as kwrite is not adapted for coding.

To compile a Java program you will need a JDK (either Oracle's JDK or OpenJDK).

For C#, I don't know what compilers are available.

I'm downloading geany now, thanks

For jedit, it seems that is a Java-Script editor. Am I right? If so, I need a program to create Java programs that will run on OpenJDK.

No, jedit is an editor intended primarily for programmers, written in java (not javascript) and that have syntax highlighting for many languages (but not C#).

My advice is dont tie yourself down to one IDE get a good programmers text editor that you can customize to your own needs, learn to use the command line compile tools, gcc etc, learn to set up an auto tools project from configure through to make and most of all enjoy yourself.

For Java programming I find the features of a fully featured ide invaluable. I personally use Eclipse, but Intellij looks very promising so I am thinking about switching...
