    Hello Everyone! I Have A Few Queries, Please Help...

    ForumMigrationAdmin

      Hi!

           I am varun sharma from India. Its really nice to be a part of this forum, i hope to get useful information over here and would love to help others. I'd like to ask a few basic beginner's queries guys, i hope you won't mind me posting that in intro section.

      Firstly, i'd like to say that i wish to become a S/W developer and Video Game Designer. I know C and C++ (From school, using Turbo Compiler which is apes old), learning 3DS Max, Cinema 4D, CryEngine 3.

      So the scenario is that i'm unable to 'begin', like i wish to learn php and develop softwares (Web-Based Apps to upload on my Server) but i don't know which SDK to get and how to do it. I can learn php language but problem is with basic setup required. So could you please help me with this -

      I wish to create S/W using Java, php, C, C++. Kindly tell me the environment to use. In my DreamSpark account, when i go to Visual Studio 2013, i get this -

      and i get dazzled by it. For example if i wish to create a basic Java calculator, which environment to use and how to get a final product (For example and .exe file for basic programs). The turbo compiler i've used for c and c++ can't really do graphical interface and we get that command prompt window thing.

      So all in all -

      Which environments to use for Php, Java, c and c++. They can be separate environments and stuff.

      Whats use of Visual studio?

      How to use both c and java in same program? (Thats a bit advanced, you can leave it if you wish)

      For java, i know of NetBeans and JDK but when it comes to Android Development, we have to use Eclipse. Whats up with all this? PLZ Help.

      Platforms i wish to cover -

      Android

      Windows (I'm using 8.1 Pro)

      Tools for my website (php, i use Linux shared hosting, by hostgator if the traffic increases, i'll go semi-managed VPS and install zPanel)

       

      So please help me, my main question is regarding the setup of SDK and stuff, i'll learn the languages by books or online but at least i need to know about the environment i'll use. there are too many SDKs available that i get really confused and stuff, like - XNA, then if i go to nVidia's site they also have SDKs,etc.
