Platform to Use

I need help
I just started learning Java and was wondering where I could go to make programs, not on code academy. Is there a specific place I should go? I use a windows computer.

Thanks!

you can develop java applications on your machine. You just need a text-editor or IDE. And java, to run the program of course

Then depending on the type of application you build (an API, desktop application or a mobile application) you would need to deploy the application

As well as what @stetim94 said, if you just wanted to write small Java programs, you could also use an online editor, such as repl. The environment is similar to CCs, and it runs the code for you, meaning you don’t have to install anything.
