 Writing LaTeX documents is very similar to coding in C++ or Python. We do not recommend using a graphical user interface application for creating LaTeX documents (because it hides most of the important stuff of what is going on in the background, which, however, is rather important to really grasp the workflow of LaTeX), instead we urge you to write your LaTeX documents with a simple text editor (e.g. gedit or the LaTeX-oriented Kile) and compile via executing commands in the terminal. Note that this is a similar workflow to writing and compiling C++ programs. Writing LaTeX documents is very similar to coding in C++ or Python.
