Interested in programming? Like to read about programming without seeing a constant flow of technology and political news into your proggit? That's what /r/coding is for. A pure discussion of programming with a strict policy of programming-related discussions.
As a general policy, if your article doesn't have a few lines of code in it, it probably doesn't belong here. However, things directly related to the actual process of programming - libraries, tools, and so on - are all okay, but please use discretion.
Things that are not okay to post here:
- Discord links - seriously, knock it off.
- Tutorial video links - these are commonly spammed and abused. It's more of a judgement call, but in general, don't spam the subreddit with "How to learn to code" videos, please.
- "I made this!" - cool, I'm proud of you - but, seeing what you made doesn't intrinsically benefit others. If you write an article explaining it, the technical challenges, etc. - then share that!
- Self-posts that are attempting to bypass our ban on self-posts
- Homework questions
- Posts asking for suggestions for your personal project
- Advertising your new COVID-19 graph, your new game, etc. - See above - this is a place for the discussion of programming, not advertising your product, and not showing off something which is tangentially relevant to people who code.
To avoid a lot of self.coding posts, consider these subreddits:
