You’re looking for an easy way to program? NetBeans from Oracle might be your solution.

  • It’s a friendly platform to help you program with popular languages like Java, C/C++, HTML5 and PHP
  • It’s a WYSIWYG to design your program
  • Compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac OS X
  • It has good community to answer most your questions
  • Constantly being improved

I used NetBeans when I began learning Java. It helped me program faster, helped me debug easier. Instead of coding most of your graphical interface, NetBeans provides tools to draw. Consequently, it makes the process a lot faster. Still, it is possible to edit the labels, frames, panels, buttons, text fields etc…

A lot of experienced programmer will say that tools like NetBeans make programmers lazier. I disagree with them. I believe that these tools help you enhance your productivity. I agree that every programmer should know how to program everything manually. NetBeans doesn’t do everything but if it saves you days and months why should you stick with the old manners? You can create most of your project with NetBeans and edit it with something else after to add personalized stuffs.

    Netbeans can also be used for programming other than Java. Its heavy version contains support for PHP, C++, Maven, Groovy, etc. and many frameworks. A good all-in-one IDE.
