Developer Section

Another great section would be sections for Developers.

They could be categorized under big umbrella of topics like...


etc... and have sub categories.

This will provide a place for developers from different background to come and share ideas as well as obtain information about the problem they are having.

Also, it's a good platform to form your own development team.

Thanks for the suggestion. There is a "scripts and programming" forum that was created for that.

Subforums could be added as the post counts start to become greater. Till then I'll just wait and see.

My friends call me JEEP!

These are actually artifacts from the old forum before the merge. I think a programming forum (with sub-forums) seems reasonable though. When we merged, Peter and I really tried simplify the forum, but we want to slowly add them back as demand arises.

So, guys, what do you think? A Programming forum in the Projects category?

That would be the People and Projects category, when I look at the Board Index? I think that might be good. Would that be a good place to pass along suggestions of / requests for software development (wholly new projects)? I know there's supposed to be an Ideas page somewhere on the wiki for that, but searching there yesterday on "Ideas" didn't bring it up as far as I could tell.

I'd love a forum dedicated to non-serious screwing-around programming for Python/Sugar. I occasionally try to mess with an activity's code and get totally bewildered. (Trying to put sounds into Maze was my last attempt.) I'm trying to think like the kid I imagine using the view-source & develop to change their games. Right now, it's really hard and having a place to chat about it would help.

A separate forum might be overkill, but I'm concerned that serious developers might intimidate the learning-by-screwing-around types, or that the latter might make the forum too noisy for the former.

I've changed the name of the "Operating System / Build" forum to "Operating System / Scripting / Programming" to address this need as the the categories often are interrelated. We'll monitor the growth and if it is popular we can create dedicated forums or sub forums. Enjoy!
