Hello everyone! I have a Few Queries, please Help...

Posted 09 April 2014 - 08:05 PM

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 dont 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 -
Feedback Client for Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013 Preview
Feedback Client for Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013 Preview Language Pack
Microsoft Agents for Visual Studio 2013
Microsoft Agents for Visual Studio 2013 Language Pack
Microsoft Build Tools 2013
Microsoft IntelliTrace Collector for Visual Studio 2013 Preview
Microsoft Multibyte MFC Library for Visual Studio 2013
Microsoft Remote Tools for Visual Studio 2013
Microsoft Team Explorer for Visual Studio 2013
Microsoft Team Explorer for Visual Studio 2013 Language Pack
Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2013
Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2013 RC
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Language Pack
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Preview Shell (Integrated) Language Pack
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Preview Shell (Integrated) Redistributable Package
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Preview Shell (Isolated) Language Pack
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Preview Shell (Isolated) Redistributable Package
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 SDK
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Update 1
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Visualization and Modeling SDK
Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for Web
Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows
Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows Desktop
Microsoft Visual Studio Premium 2013
Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2013
Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013
Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server Express 2013
Microsoft Visual Studio Test Professional 2013 Language Pack
Microsoft Visual Studio Test Professional 2013 RC
Microsoft Visual Studio Ultimate 2013

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 seperate 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? please 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.

My PC Config -

Please do not open duplicate topics. Your previous one was moved to the 'software development' forum as it wasn't really an 'introduce yourself' topic.
