In our first tutorial we learned all about programming languages and then we created a Hello World program using the programming language Java, a text editor called SciTE and the command prompt, through that article there was mention of an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) let's take a look at some great IDE's available out there some are open source and some are license based.


Basic programming

To start off this tutorial series we are going to learn the very brief basics of programming, and in traditional programming nature we are going to create a hello world program using the Java language as a starting point.

Programs can run in various environments that they are written for, for instance, Linux can run C/C++ code, OS X can run Objective C/Swift code and Windows can run C#/VB code. The Java Runtime Environment may be installed on top of these operating systems among others essentially making Java programs cross-platform.
