    Beginner, wants to start interface design...

    I hope to design a program to myself which will be a stand-alone product and I will use it to record important dates, add reminders, store folder places and website adresses, take notes and combine them to bigger projects adressed to folders, store program shortcuts, record times of some tasks, and hopefully even limit my own use of computer if needed.

    Pretty much a personal assistant thing.

    I tried that before with MATLAB GUI. I did not like the results as they just did not offer much tool. That, and also I prefer a stand-alone program.

    Later on some people on the Internet suggested using C# to perform all these.

    However, how will I design the interface with C#? Some people suggest Visual Studio, but I do not even know id it is possible to use Community version to design GUI. There seems some other GUI options, but I do not know which ones are suitable for me. I just lack the basics to plan my route so I need an introduction to use C# with an interface.

    Thanks for help...

    Yes Visual Studio is the main IDE for C# and .NET programming. The community editon would be fine. If you use WPF you can also use Adobe Illustrator to create the UI, save it as .xaml and import in Visual Studio or use Blend which comes with VS: YouTube
