Software Applications Programming Review

Software applications programming has turned many into millionaires. With the fast growth of technological based lifestyle pretty much every requires some kind of software to operate. It is no rocket science to predict the future of this industry.

With that said, it is important to mention that learning to program and develop software application is not an easy task but it is not an impossible one. I mean these days there are a number of software programs that help create windows applications without being a programmer. I often recommend that you buy a book on java, C++, or C# especially if you are a beginner.

If you are not necessarily a hard core programmer and just want to play around with some ideas then consider tools like Game Maker by Mark Overmars. Although this one was originally developed for game making it can, however, do much more. You can use it to make EXE programs with ease. The point is, with this one you need no programming skills.

Now if you know some basic software applications programming then you might consider Visual Basic or VB.NET. What I love about VB.NET is the fact that it is user friendly. You need to have some basic knowledge of PHP to use it and having an idea of OOP languages i.e. Java and C++ will make the learning process even faster. The only problem I have with VB.NET is that it is expensive along with its counterpart – Visual Studios from Microsoft.

An alternative to the latter would be Sun’s Eclipse software. You can use it to create Java-driven apps. The good news is that it’s free and you can learn to use it quite faster than VB.NET.
