Microsoft Visual Studios 2013 Community Edition

Microsoft Visual Studios 2013 Community Edition

Hello readers,

Recently as I drifted back toward programming I found myself tinkering with a variety of development environments. I don’t customarily blog about it when eclipse or codeblocks gets a new feature because frankly not many of you are programmers… yet.

I say “yet” because I think between just a few tools you might enjoy a little adventure in programming. Then perhaps you’ll have a deeper appreciation for the kind of articles that some of the more advanced programmers are writing and much more importantly, you’ll have a skill that nobody can do without.

To get started I’ll suggest you download this gem of a development environment simply because you can’t find better resources to do many of the little projects that can make “programming something useful,” an enjoyable experience, even before you know how.

I use and recommend Codeblocks to learn more difficult programming techniques, (like in C programming,) but have built a few things in Visual Studio recently and think it’s just the place to get started.

Get started doing what? You might reasonably wonder.

How about building your own web browser? I wouldn’t have you download a nearly 10 Gb programming environment if you couldn’t do something cool. (Incidently Microsoft Visual Studios 2013 Community Edition is free with specific limitations on the size of your development team.) Codeblocks, Eclipse, and many other IDE’s are also free, so always check before you buy something you don’t need.

That’s just the beginning, between the community forums, open projects, and countless resources online, you’ll be eager to learn more programming quickly.

And that’s a wonderful thing.

Fair warning the browser works fine, and is perfectly safe, but sets off some antivirus programs like Norton so adjust your settings to use it properly. Likewise if you let other people try it on their computers the same antivirus “freakout” is highly likely, due only to the nature of new unsigned programs etc.

Be sure to include such a warning long before you make something available to others as it is likely to cause some confusion.

If you end up wanting more advanced programming at your fingertips I’d recommend the C Diploma course at Allison online.

and Codeblocks.

 

Spread the love
