Hello, I am revisiting the seemingly infinite world of programming. I want to gain as much working knowledge on all things IT/Software related. I took some programming courses a couple of years ago. First of all, I'd like to know which is the best software platform programmers are currently using to record code onto. I recall primarily using Notepad. I've heard through the grapevine that there are several other acceptable platforms.

Can anybody provide me with any sort of feedback?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Plain old Notepad? Yeah thats really not acceptable at all anymore.

It depends on what languages you are using and whether you want to use an IDE (integrated development environment) or use a good text editor and compile yourself etc (if needed).

I'm specifically looking to hone my programming skills in Javascript for the time being; I'm thinking more along the lines of using a text editor. I'd be open to using an IDE, however; I would probably need to do some more research before venturing off into those waters

Its a good idea to use just a text editor, but make sure its own that's better than the plain old Notepad.

Notepad++ is a very popular alternative.
