What's Tools Do I Need To Start Building A Messaging App by Temian1: 11:12pm On Dec 07, 2018
First the question is ? As a beginner what programming language do I need to know before I can build a functional messaging app like WhatsApp or 2go.

Secondly can I build this app alone or need assistance?
Thirdly how many months will it's take before I can call my self a pro developer


Reasonable comments

You need to be good in programming. There are so many free online course but if you could afford money for online training, its a plus plus

You might struggle to build a functional messaging app on your own as a beginner. It's not impossible but it is difficult.
You need a language that has robustness, fault tolerance and concurrency so you should learn Elixir. Whatsapp was built with Erlang I believe, but Elixir might be easier to learn and incorporates more modern resources. It is essentially an improvement on Erlang.
Your question suggests to me that you don't know programming. In that case, you should learn programming first with Python or Smalltalk.
Go and search online. There is bound to be a tutorial or two to get you started.
Good luck.

The development enviroment(Android studio, visual studio etc)
Any of the language you want to use, for back-end (c, c#, kotlin etc)
Front end (Javascript or any of its framework, vue, react, angular, node. Js etc)
You can also use firebase which is much better.

OP na over sabi nai wan do u so
messaging app is impossible for you at the moment since you said you are a newbie
start with basic things like calculator, note saver,etc
This is most problem with Nigerian youth, they want to blow once

Frontend: React.js/Angular.js

Backend: Node ( best for running asynchronous request used for chat apps)/ socket.io/express.js framework for node.

A chat app shouldn't be that hard to build.
Once you start learning FLUTTER, you can literally build a chat app in less than one month spending 4 hours per day.


Head on to flutter.io to get started

New to software development and programming? Learn Python.

Web app? Learn JavaScript, front and back end.
Android?

Mobile/native? Depends on platform/OS. For example, id Android, learn Java or Kotlin, and Android Studio.

Just have fun learning
