How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

20. September, 2012

When you write software, you get bug reports and pleas for help. When you use software, you sometimes (or even often) stumble over problems and need help.

Since processes of this type involve more than a single person, friction occurs. To reduce this friction, read this document: “How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

It’s a good read for both sides. It will help you understand why some questions irritate you and it will help you understand why you didn’t receive any help when you had a problem.

Wikianswers vs. StackOverflow

23. February, 2009

I’ve mentioned StackOverflow a few times. If you have a question related to software development, that’s the place to go. But there is no place to ask other questions.

Well, five days ago, wikianswers started and … there is still no place to ask other questions. I do not doubt that Jimmy Whales knows what he’s doing but for some reason, he didn’t notice Web 2.0. Yes, wikianswers looks nice (well, the top of the page does; let’s not go into the rest, especially the search results and such).

Obviously, this site runs on top of the MediaWiki software. While the guys on StackOverflow pulled every string to make it as simple as possible to ask and answer a question, I feel that the workflow on wikianswers drains a lot of my enthusiasm even before I get to answer a question.

Good luck, Jimmy! We really need a place to ask questions.
