Anyone is invited to take part in these programming events.
Simply make sure you register if you aren't registered and if you are, start posting in the threads to come (including this one)!
As noted in the title this thread is about community programming events.
What does that mean?
Well, this thread and the one's I create after it will be a place where all programmers from all different languages can come together to discuss, write, fix, debug, test, compare, and comment on code. The code that we will be working with will be related to the events I will post in each thread. I will link to each previous topic and next topic in the top of each thread.
This is a place for Codecall's members to come together and participate in community events.
This is not a place to ask irrelevant questions not pertaining to the project posted.
If we gain enough participation there may also be a new board created for community programming events. It all depends on participation.
In each topic there will be a new event for members to take part in.
The frequency of the events posted depends on participation level. I want to have a weekly event, maybe more, but it just depends on how many people are actively participating. This means if you are doing the projects I post and aren't registered, or aren't posting your code and asking questions, make sure you do so or else I wont feel like the participation level is high enough!
For now these threads will be posted in this Community Projects board. If we do decide to move boards I will post the link in the "next topic" at the top of the post.
To me, the only reason Q and A forums exist is because the people asking the Questions can't find the Answers on-line.
This can be because they are too lazy to use Google, don't have googling skills, or just because there is no clear answer.
In any case, this leads to a forum based around Q and A, and not around a community.
My goal for this forum is to make it more of a community rather than a tutor session. To do that, I am going to create events on weekly (or more) projects that meet everyone's common interest: programming. (At least I hope that's why you are here)
If you have any suggestions for an event or anything else pertaining to this thread please make sure you PM me.
Each thread will be a separate event. They will be all related to programming, an exercise, a discussion etc. Your job is to participate!
For instance, most of the events will be programming projects. I will post instructions to an project, and you, the programming advocate you are, will ask questions if you need help, answer questions if asked by other people, code, post your code, comment(nicely) on other people's code, etc.
Any questions?....Well then, lets get started!
First event: http://forum.codecal...html#post289470
