    [Forum] Windows 8 Programming Section?


    Where is the dev love? Where are we supposed to share our programming projects, programming questions, etc?

    We need a Windows 8 Programming Section on this forum ASAP.

    Thank you.

    Try stackoverflow, I don't think this is a good forum for something like that.

    So you don't recommend having a developer subcommunity here?

    They're already free to post here Software and Apps - Windows 8 Forums (within reason, of course). Depending on how things progress, we might or might not have a sub-forum for developers either in that section of the forums or elsewhere.

    The description of the thread:
    General software and Metro App help and support.








    Obviously most people post there for software help.

    We've tried Dev and programming sections on our sites over the years and after a few weeks of moderate posting they just fall flat and go month to month with nothing new (other than spammers trying to pass affiliate links).

    However if I do spot enough posts happening regularly on any given subject then I do tend to give it it's own section.

    Ok after a nudge from Shawn I've setup Free Developer Programs and Projects (Software&Apps Sub forum) and we'll see how it goes.
