This is the Arduino IDE, used to program an Arduino-based microprocessor. The website it comes from is www.arduino.cc and it's front page description says it pretty accurately: Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. They're trustworthy, and the program is pretty important if you have an arduino board.
