6 of the Best Programs Available for Coding - Carol Evenson - Blog

6 of the Best Programs Available for Coding

Coding doesn't exist in a vacuum. To code well, you need to have a toolbox full of techniques and programs available to assist you. Here are six of the best programs available for coding.


  1. Code Analysis Tools

Code analysis tools, such as static analysis programs, review code and flag errors or issues when the code is in an inactive state. It's basically an automated version of another developer reviewing your code for errors. Code analysis tools, however, can analyze your code more efficiently, accurately and quickly than human developers can. The type of tool you utilize will depend on the coding language you're using. For example, if you're using JavaScript, you'll want to use a JavaScript static analysis tool. Keep in mind, no matter what type of code analysis tool you use, it will primarily review your code's readability, not its functionality. For functionality, testing is still the best review tool.

  1. Code Editors

Code editors are essential tools for any developer. Various code editor programs exist for each operating system, and the majority are simple and streamlined for ease of use. For simple programs or code snippets, you can use a basic text editor, but the more complex your code, the more you need a program that is specialized for editing code. Code editors enable you to assess the functionality, readability, coherence and consistency of your code before you complete the program.


  1. IDE Software

IDE, or Integrated Development Environment, software is a type of program developers can use to streamline code writing and web development. IDE software typically includes several tools or sub-programs including debuggers, graphic user interfaces, build integration and text editors, among others. A basic IDE can be useful for an organization seeking to centralize all of its basic coding needs. If you need more specialized tools, you may be able to find IDEs that include sub-programs such as model-driven deployment and programming language support, among other options.


  1. Compiler Languages

Depending on your needs, you may need to use a compiler language. This type of tool is commonly employed when you need to simplify the program you're developing and make it more easily understood. Common situations include research software and programs intended for the commercial processing of data. Compiling your coding languages enables you to write more complex programs that can be used across multiple machines, interfaces of operating systems, without overwhelming yourself or your code writing and editing programs.


  1. Debugging Programs

Every developer should use a debugging program when he or she is writing code. Debugging is the process of reviewing code, locating bugs, copying or recreating them and finding ways to resolve them. In some cases, bugs are common or understood well enough that this process is simple, but in others, the bugs are complex and need to be simplified before you can do anything about understanding or correcting them. Because of this, you should make sure your debugging software is powerful. Depending on your needs, you may choose to use an independent debugging program or one that is part of an IDE or code editor program.


  1. Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are programs that can be taught to do a variety of tasks, from the simple to the complex. These programs can assist in tasks associated with coding, from testing and editing to analyzing the code to see where improvements can be made. In some cases, machine learning and AI may be able to be leveraged to write simple code, particularly when that code is made up of or based on pre-existing code snippets the program can analyze and base its code off of.


The programs you need will depend on what type of code you're trying to write. You should always use a code editor and a code analysis tool, but which one you choose will depend on your chosen coding language. By contrast, a more specialized program like AI will only be utilized in specific situations.
