About the Programming Community

in Programming & Dev4 years ago (edited)

Hello, and welcome to the Programming community. @xves has convinced me to make this post about why we exist and to answer some commonly asked quwstions. I am no writing prodigy (in fact quite the opposite), so let's just get down to business.

The Programming Community is intended for a much broader set of posts than say HiveDevs who focus on Hive. We take any sort of programming related-posts here. It doesn't even need to be code. As a general guideline it should be one of the below:

  • Open Source Code you've used/made/found that could be useful (with an explanation as to why/what it does to show understanding if not your own work).
  • Software you made (even if it's not open source, just share some Screenshots or maybe a live demo or something)
  • dApps you made or found (which don't have to run on Hive, but Hive dApps are perfectly acceptable. Ideally said dApp should be developed by you or of some benefit to developers)
  • Tools that you've made or found (anything that can help out devs or something that you've made that you'd consider a tool)
  • Libraries (maybe you've found a really cool library which you think could help hiveans, you can share it here with some information).

If you're not sure, you can always contact me on Discord (CADawg#3984) or Just Post It™ - The worst thing that could happen is we'll give you feedback on what's wrong with it, and you can either correct it or if it's off topic of this community, we may mute that one post. We aren't going to mute you from the community for one little mistake. We all make mistakes, don't we.

let me = "answer your FAQs";

What isn't acceptable in this community?

The usual, such as Plagarism, spamming and scamming aren't allowed here. Obviously as a dev I do understand that some things can only be represented in a few ways, and that is fine. That doesn't mean stealing all the wording from the documentation is okay though!

What do we like?

Original Content that shows your understanding of what it is you're writing about and why it's useful to software devs or if it's your own software, your understanding of it as well. We aren't trying to assess you and please don't let the big bad FAQs Scare you off!

I use an obscure programming language

Go ahead. I've seen plenty of new programming languages (to myself) being introduced in this community, and it's really interesting and great to know of.


Yup, they're on the community page somewhere. Please adhere to them 😁

I am a mod, but how?

I think you're an active user who writes good content and cares about the community, or you volunteered and I picked you.

I want to be a mod.

Show you care for this community, and you'll have a chance at being promoted. You can always ask!

I am a mod but I don't want to be

Just tell me and I'll remove you from moderation of this community!

I don't like u @cadawg


I am Klye. What am I not allowed to do?

Do not try to take over the community again. Thanks!

Thank you for reading and Code on!

I hope my posts are okay. I just finished another course, so will post about that.

Sorry for this late reply, I was hoping I wouldn't put anyone off with this post. Your posts are welcome here and I'm just about to GO and take a look at your latest one now!

Who is Kyle?

@klye come defend yourself.

can you tell me if i want to learn code in blockchain what language and framework that i need to know?

There's so many different ways to do it, but take for example HIVE, here's a few ways you can work with:

  • JavaScript and @hiveio/hive-js
  • Python and Beem

For ethereum, their language is Solidity, which you could learn.

Other blockchains and libraries are available, but I usually work in Python and JavaScript so that's why I know of these.

For JS there's more (hive-tx, dhive) and the same with python(lighthive, and then theres hivepy). But the ones you mentioned are probably most popular and maintained.

I'm new here in the community, I just saw this post though I have not made a post yet. I started learning programming and I needed a community where I can share my challenges and ideas too. Will the community welcome a learner since I am not developing apps yet? Thanks.

Yes, we welcome anything so long as it is related to progamming, and learning most certainly is. Welcome 👋

Nice presentation

The program is good for all people in the world and make to communication another in the world.

Will this be too simple to post here?

Seems like it makes sense to post here. If you're talking about for being upvoted though, I would suggest that maybe a couple more sentences explaining why you picked these and how you feel on what you have learned or gained can be useful.

Hello friend @cadawg I wanted to know if the programming in C language oriented applications with microcontrollers was valid to be published in this community.

Wow that's great faqs that I've ever seen am this is very informative and good question to all of this community of course that everyone who share here a software must know first whatis this for and ofcourse if you own the software so means you know it and you know how explain to everyone in this community and where you came this software or a programmer it is absolutely good thanks for sharing this

glad i found this community. i look forward to making dev log posts with questions maybe the community can help me figure out

Hey there, am a frontend developer thanks for this I'll also well to share useful content and keep community rules
