Which is the best coding program?
I would like to start coding and I'm not so sure where to start I already have Microsoft visual studio what should I do?
Hey G-Virus, welcome to the forum!
So you are off to a good start. Visual Studio is Microsoft's IDE (Integrated Developer Environment) . It's a fantastic tool but really very powerful and can be a bit of a steep learning curve for beginners. Depending on what you want to learn first I'd suggest trying out Visual Studio Code, it's a light weight code editor but has some powerful features! It's ideal for writing code that you don't have to compile, HTML or CSS for example!
If you wanted to stick with Visual Studio, We've written a few articles covering this topic:
Maybe start reading this one first:
I hope this helps!
PS. Introduce your self in the welcome forum 🙂
I agree with Mike, Visual Studio is a full featured development environment. Check out VSCode or something like Jetbrains Rider.
Rider is also fully featured but it performs better on lower end PC's.
Nothing to add here. Just wanted to say good luck and keep us posted. Would love to hear how you get on!
yea i was able to build a hello world application using some c# in visual studio. I followed one video online and now I'm understanding some basics of c#.
thanks for the help!
Well done G-Virus, do you want to post some screenshots and code snippets? Perhaps we can give you some tips on improving your app?
The next thing for you to do is to keep making stuff, it doesn't have to be flawless but set your self a task or problem and try to solve it with C#
Hey thanks for the comments all.
I'm now working on a simple web app that helps me store my shopping list. Trying to build it using C# MVC and so far I have created basic layout, and now I'll start adding some actual functionality.
will create a 'showcase' thread when i've done it.
Still working on this btw, i've not forgotten.
