How is this different from stackoverflow.com?
We're a big fan of stackoverflow.com. They have a Q&A model that allows to start with a question that leads to a conversation regarding the solution. There is no doubt that Stack Overflow has changed the way we all develop and if you like to engage in discussion or follow the train of thought, it is a fantastic resource. But sometimes you are just trying out some things and you are just interested in a piece of code where details are not important yet.
The code snippets on this site are valued by asking one simple question: Would you recommend this code example to your colleagues? That's all we want to know.
In the end... code always wins.
You can help us a great deal by adding code examples to the database.
