What are your other favorite programming boards?

Postby Grell » 2019-07-31 05:22

Hey, I have been out of the loop when it comes to Linux programming for quite a while now and I am only now started to get back into the game. I picked up a book on python and am working my way through it. I learned C way back in 2001 and have been on and off with C programming ever since but python has always interested me. I know we have these forums here on on the Debian user forums but I would like to know where you guys go for 'pure' programming forums? My ultimate goal is to learn python, bash, and possibly perl, all within the next year or so.

For Perl, I like the Perl Monks forum. Any search program will get you information about other languages as well, for example look for "forums about bash scripting" or "forums for Python", I also like this QB64 forum, for qbasic, it is fun.

People often make the mistake of thinking when someone suggests doing a search it means using google, but even though google is ok for shoppers, for programing there are other search machines, or you can even develope your own search engine, and train it to search for information specific to your needs. For example,
you ask about , programming boards and include python , as one language you are interested in.
So I did this to give you a example, and maybe help you get started:
https://searchcode.com/?q=python+forums
forums.py in freecritters https://github.com/leifkb/freecritters.git | 245 lines | Python
Code: Select all

def forums(req, group_id=None):

        group = None

        forums = Forum.query.filter_by(group_id=None)

            req.check_group_permission(group, None)

        forums = group.forums

   

    forums = forums.options(

    fc.group = group # Pool closed due to AIDS and kludgery

    return req.render_template('forums.mako',

        group=group,

    results = create_post_form(req)

    results.action = 'forums.create_post', dict(thread_id=thread_id)

        Session.flush()

        req.redirect('forums.thread', None, 'post%s' % post.post_id,

Another, for c+ :
https://searchcode.com/?q=while%20(*d%2B%2B%20%3D%20*s%2B%2B)%3B&lan=16&lan=23
Or try:
Code: Select all
c+ forums
as your key words.
https://searchcode.com/?q=c%2B+forums
That should give you the basics, I am not any kind of expert like my grand father was, but he taught me about using search code to do searches on the things I want to know about, and I am still learning new ways of doing this myself.

Another good one is : https://www.codeproject.com/
For discussions: https://www.codeproject.com/script/Forums/List.aspx
Linux specific:
https://www.codeproject.com/Forums/1942421/Linux-Programming.aspx
Discussions on anything to do with programming on Linux. Whether it be C++, web development, bash scripting or digging into the Kernel.

I like stackoverflow (a.k.a., SO).

Not a forum, or "board", actually much better, I am reading /studying this book during summer vacation:
https://www.amazon.com/Expert-Systems-Principles-Programming-Fourth/dp/0534384471
There also are some sites that offer PDF downloads, if you know how to search.
