[kwlug-disc] Introduction to Linux programming - Request

unsolicited unsolicited at swiz.ca

Myself, I'm interested in the development environment itself, 
especially the IDEs.

I can look up and sink into a language. It's a much more vaporous 
question to figure out how to start. e.g. Repository, editor, 
building, publishing - there's a lot of unintuitive pieces in there. 
Let alone which comes first.

Once I have that I can easily pick a language, then follow a web 
tutorial for hello world, and then work from there.

But not until I have the necessary infrastructure surrounding that in 
place.
