Forum section dedicated to sharing/critiquing projects?

Posted 05 July 2019 - 10:34 AM

So I've been thinking, and I think it'd be really cool to have a section of the forums dedicated to sharing your projects to get critique/feedback on. I've often found myself wishing I had someone to look over/critique/contribute to my Github code, and with all the wonderful people here I feel it could be a productive thing. I'm sure many of us have Github accounts, so I think it'd be cool to have an area where we all post our stuff and help each other out.

What do you all think? Is this a good idea, or would this just be a waste of time?

Regardless, I thought it'd be a good discussion ;)

P.S. If an area like this already exists, I haven't found it, but please feel free to direct me to it and lock the thread :P

Something similar to the "site check" under Wed Dev, but aimed at sharing repos? Not a bad idea, I'd say, but probably worth giving it a trial run. My inclination would be to start a thread under Software Development inviting people to share links to repos that they're working on. If there's uptake, then you'd have a case to make for a dedicated section. If there's crickets, then we've saved some trouble.

Yeah, that's essentially what I had in mind.

That's not a bad idea. I guess I'll do that and we'll see what happens! ;)

We do have that section "Share Your Project".

I saw that section, but since it was in the freelancing area I assumed it was more for professional projects rather than personal ones.

Edit: Feel free to delete/lock this thread then, sorry.

Perhaps start a thread in the 'share your project' but pick a different project to lead with. :^:
