You may have to sign up for a free Apple Developer Account in order to download Xcode 10 from the developer link that BDAqua provided — unless Apple has relaxed its access privileges for these tools.
Download Mac Os 10.13.1
Alternatively, If all you want is a a compilation environment for Objective-C, C++, and Swift v4.n, the Command Line Tools (macOS 10.13) for Xcode will provide that at 7GB less storage. You would then need a competent programmer's editor, and you can still build hand-coded cocoa applications. This is my preference.
