#5046778 Is it bad to use an IDE when you're just starting out with programming in...

Posted by TropicMonkey on 26 March 2013 - 12:14 AM

The book I am thinking about buying to learn how to program in Java advises the reader to avoid using any IDE such as NetBeans or Eclipse. Instead, it recommends the use of a simple code editor such as TextPad or Notepad++. It says IDEs, while they make programming easier and more efficient, don't allow the beginning programmer to learn as much. Do you agree with this?
