    • What are the Snippet Guidelines?


      Snippet Guidelines
      A Code Snippet is a useful piece of code which accomplishes a common task, demonstrates a technique or concept, fills a gap in an existing language, and could be reused in an existing application. Snippets should be well commented and explain the concepts being used. Snippets should be useful to a wide audience. Snippets should conform to standards when possible.

      Snippets should not simply be an example of a built in function or library. Snippets should not be full applications unless the application demonstrates a useful concept. Snippets should not be malicious or violate any laws (including intellectual property laws).

      Snippets are reviewed individually and may take several days to be approved/disapproved. Approved snippets are worth 25 kudos.

  • Blog

    • How can I start my blog?
      Go to My Profile > Edit My Profile > Your Blog Settings. Once there you can create your own D.I.C blog or links to your external blog.

  • Kudos

    • What are kudos?
      Kudos are a contribution based points system. Kudos may be awarded through competitions and is rewarded for submitting an approved tutorial (50 kudos) or a snippet (25 kudos). These are found in the user profiles along side each post and in their complete profile.
