Hacker Overflow - the idea
A community of builders and doers.
Behind the scenes I’ve been working on putting together a new community that I’m calling Hacker Overflow.
I hoping that it will be a community of software builders and doers.
Live coding sessions & classes about once a month on a variety of tech topics and showing how to build real stuff (I’m hoping to run the first live session towards the end of July).
A live & active community (connected via a Discord server).
A bunch of private code repos (lots of code ready for copy/paste use and/or to learn from).
A collection and archive of curated videos from real devs who know and use the tech (practical lessons, advice & tips).
Code reviews, bug fixing help, & just general help from people in the community (just a few of us to start, but ideally others as I continue to build the community up).
Networking and learning with other, actual, devs.
Could you find all this stuff online already?
But it would take a big effort, potentially cost a bunch, be very disjointed, and even still I think based on all the code academies, courses, and general noise out there...there is no shortage of appetite for this type of thing (IMHO).
So I’m attempting to build it.
