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.
I bet on my hairy balls that you can't code a print hello world program. What kind of nonsense is this, that you wrote here

I am a software developer and I have a toy chat app under development @ https://chattie.now.sh . It was built with golang, react and GraphQL.

JavaScript will give you all the tools you need to build a chat app. Express js for your backend, react or react native for the front end and websocket to communicate between both ends. You can follow a tutorial here ==> https://itnext.io/building-a-node-js-websocket-chat-app-with-socket-io-and-react-473a0686d1e1

I am interested in seeing your product if you eventually build it.

Nigerians and pretending to know something they know little about... angry

Firstly development is split into two because Iphones use IOS and Android phones run on of course Android.

Apple phones require you to learn how to program using Objective C and develop using their Xcode IDE environment for their operating system. You will need to sign up to become an apple member online.

Android phones use a variant of Java developed by Google. Learning how to build Android applications does take time (a few years in truth and you must be dedicated). You will again need to learn the language and you will also need an application like android studio to develop your code in.

There is a shortcut but you will still need to know how to program and that is to use a tool like React Native developed by Facebook. It allows you to use Javascript to develop your app. Then it automatically creates the code to run on both Iphones and Android phones..

Tutorials for the above are available online and youtube is a great resource for learning.

Remember becoming a great developer isnt something that happens overnight, it takes years of practice and mixing with other developers.

Good luck..

Mrblaster:
Udemy.com have a lot of programming trainings that will be helpful. Get the app on playstore and start learning today

Bros, I downloaded Udemy sometime ago, just recently I decided to pick a course to learn then they said I should pay with my card, I stopped there because I have never made an international online transaction.

Do you think there is another I can pay to them and is it safe for me to give them my digits? It's like you're experienced with this.
Thank you.

Don't bother yourself. We have many coupons online you can use to get paid courses on Udemy for free. Search on Google and you will be fine.

Thank you.

You sure can but after a payment, you should disable "Auto-Renew" or even delete your card
else you might wake up one morning and see that you've been charge $99 or so for a course or something renewed itself.
