Are there any really good open source programs you can use to make your own software in? (Like artistic programs)

Are there any really good open source programs you can use to make your own software in? (Like artistic programs)

Recently I started getting back into the many creative computer related stuff where you create your own artwork, 3D models, music and now I actually want to create my own software. I feel like there’s definitely more I would want to add to my own software that I don’t get out of the ones that already exist.

I have little knowledge in software development especially since it’s been many, many years since trying to pick up certain coding languages and getting as far as creating my own window. (Still kind of cool tbh)

One last question, does anyone do reverse engineering to learn how to write code quicker?

I’m lost trying to figure out what to use to create dll files and create exe files etc. I don’t think attempting reverse engineering myself has helped because I probably don’t know how to do it.

Writing this post is what reminded me of the time I tried to learn from scratch…I know that’s where I’ll be heading but it would have been interesting to have the “view page source” option of a file like you can with a website to figure things out faster.
