Hi guys, So, I recently made a transition from Windows to a Mac and the experience has been awesome so far. To the problem now: I have been learning and using C++/Java/HTML etc. for the past two years. This was all in Windows. Like, For C++ there was C:/TC/Bin and so on and so forth. I can program really well (I think so?) in these languages but I don't know where to start in a Mac. I'll be starting college soon and will be majoring in CS. I'll be learning Python and then use of MATLAB in the first year. For that I need you guys to tell me where exactly does one code in a Mac? I saw some posts about this 'Xcode' and all but I didn't research much about. I'll be googling about this, of course and search the rest of this forum but before that I thought it would be great if someone here could help me out. I know programming. I am not asking about that. I just needed to know what are the necessary softwares, applications I would need to buy/download (if not inbuilt) to start it on Mac. Where do I need to go first. If you have some time to spare please help me out here ( Remember I am a total NOOB in here so please please dumb sown your post a bit ) Thanks. P.S. If there's already been a thread or a very informative post/link that spells out the basics or anything like that out there on the net please do tell me. Thanks!!
