dotcomma.org Debuts

[ Linux Today reader Adam Berlinsky-Schine writes: ]

"A new resource devoted to helping developers program has been opened at dotcomma.org. The site features programming articles, contests, resources, source code examples, book reviews, etc. Worth a look."

From the dotcomma.org site:

"Dotcomma began production in September 1999 and released to the public on December 24th of that same year. It was created primarily by Adam Berlinsky-Schine, along with supporters including Eric Sun and Aaron Chernosky. It was created to be the final destination for all programmers, both beginner and expert, looking for technical support, discussion, challenge, and opportunity. This was also the origins of our name; a semicolon (dot and a comma) is usually the last character of statements in most programming languages."

"So, what can you get out of dotcomma? Well, if you're a beginner then you should start with our programming articles. You can find a wide variety of articles ranging from beginner to advanced relating to a variety of programming languages. If you are having trouble with something programming-related, you can search our developers listing to find someone who can help you. Also be sure to check out our discussion forums for help. Finally check out our source code archive for examples of how to use code for various purposes. Need more help? Perhaps you want to read some book reviews or resources."

"Are you a more advanced programmer? Dotcomma has resources for you too! All of the above features come in advanced versions. There are many programming articles regarding various advanced aspects of programming. Source code and discussion forums can be used to your advantage as well. Perhaps you'd like to get together with another developer to work on a joint project or to ask an advanced user for advice. If you think you're a good programmer, you may want to try out our challenges. Finally, we hope that you can share your knowledge with dotcomma. There are many opportunities to write articles, book reviews, join our technical support team, or contribute programming source code. If you're interested, view our join page. We also hope that you'll become active participants in our discussion forums."
