C# 1 vote


C# (pronounced “C Sharp”) is one of many .NET programming languages. It is object-oriented and allows you to build reusable components for a wide variety of application types. Microsoft introduced C# on June 26th, 2000 and it became a v1.0 product on Feb 13th 2002.

C# is an evolution of the C and C++ family of languages. However, it borrows features from other programming languages, such as Delphi and Java. If you look at the most basic syntax of both C# and Java, the code looks very similar, but then again, the code looks a lot like C++ too, which is intentional. Developers often ask questions about why C# supports certain features or works in a certain way. The answer is often rooted in it's C++ heritage.

Powerful, stable, mature, portable

Perl 5 is a highly capable, feature-rich programming language with over 23 years of development. Perl 5 runs on over 100 platforms from portables to mainframes and is suitable for both rapid prototyping and large scale development projects.

“Perl” is a family of languages, “Perl 6” is part of the family, but it is a separate language which has it's own development team, it's existence has no significant impact on the continuing development of “Perl 5”.

Ruby 2 votes

A Programmer's Best Friend

Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general-purpose object-oriented programming language that combines syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features. Ruby originated in Japan during the mid-1990s and was first developed and designed by Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto. It was influenced primarily by Perl, Smalltalk, Eiffel, and Lisp.

Ruby supports multiple programming paradigms, including functional, object oriented, imperative and reflective. It also has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management; it is therefore similar in varying respects to Smalltalk, Python, Perl, Lisp, Dylan, Pike, and CLU.

The standard 1.8.7 implementation is written in C, as a single-pass interpreted language. There is currently no specification of the Ruby language, so the original implementation is considered to be the de facto reference. As of 2010, there are a number of complete or upcoming alternative implementations of the Ruby language, including YARV, JRuby, Rubinius, IronRuby, MacRuby, and HotRuby. Each takes a different approach, with IronRuby, JRuby and MacRuby providing just-in-time compilation and MacRuby also providing ahead-of-time compilation. The official 1.9 branch uses YARV, as will 2.0 (development), and will eventually supersede the slower Ruby MRI.

Vim 1 vote

Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing. It is an improved version of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems.

Vim is often called a “programmer's editor,” and so useful for programming that many consider it an entire IDE. It's not just for programmers, though. Vim is perfect for all kinds of text editing, from composing email to editing configuration files.
Vim can be configured to work in a very simple (Notepad-like) way, called evim or Easy Vim.

Eclipse 1 vote

Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on building an extensible development platform, runtimes and application frameworks for building, deploying and managing software across the entire software lifecycle. Many people know us, and hopefully love us, as a Java IDE but Eclipse is much more than a Java IDE.

The Eclipse open source community has over 200 open source projects. These projects can be conceptually organized into seven different “pillars” or categories:

1.Enterprise Development
2.Embedded and Device Development
3.Rich Client Platform
4.Rich Internet Applications
5.Application Frameworks
6.Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)
7.Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

The Eclipse community is also supported by a large and vibrant ecosystem of major IT solution providers, innovative start-ups, universities and research institutions and individuals that extend, support and complement the Eclipse Platform.

One very exciting thing about Eclipse is that many people are using Eclipse in ways that we have never imagined. The common thread is that they are building innovative, industrial-strength software and want to use great tools, frameworks and runtimes to make their job easier.

NetBeans 1 vote

NetBeans refers to both a platform framework for Java desktop applications, and an integrated development environment (IDE) for developing with Java, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Groovy, C, C++, Scala[citation needed], Clojure[citation needed], and others. The NetBeans IDE 7.0 no longer supports Ruby and Ruby on Rails.

The NetBeans IDE is written in Java and can run anywhere a compatable JVM is installed, including Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Solaris. A JDK is required for Java development functionality, but is not required for development in other programming languages.

The NetBeans platform allows applications to be developed from a set of modular software components called modules. Applications based on the NetBeans platform (including the NetBeans IDE) can be extended by third party developers.

Notepad++ 1 vote

Notepad++ is a free (as in “free speech” and also as in “free beer”) source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.

Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.
