Please comment with what communities you would like to be added here.

For mod creation I need both the url style name (experienced_devs) and the Display name (Experienced Devs)

    Saw that a python community is still missing. Currently getting more and more into it, so would be nice.

      Done! If you post in it I’ll make you a mod if you want! :)

        I’d be happy to help mod c/python.

    Can we have something like nostupidquestions but for computer science/software engineering topics? Would be very helpful for beginners and could probably be a pool where people can ask stupid questions without fear.

    Request for a general (Unix) shell community! (shell and Shell Scripting) I made [email protected], so you can tell my intentions if you read the sidebar there. I’m having issues making posts there, though, and this instance makes more sense. I’m a current mod at /r/bash, and intend to reach out to the mods of sister subreddits if they want to join.

    I originally was intending on all shell languages, but since we now have !powershell, I’d be fine with restricting it to Unix shells. I don’t know pwsh or batch well anyway, I’d have to ask pwshguy to help!

    Why not lang-specific communities like !bash?

    1. Scripting fundamentals translate very well between languages, not to mention tools like awk, jq, and others are common to many.
    2. In practice, there was a far more overlap than not within the different subreddits; both users and content.

    If you disagree with combining sister languages as a policy, that’s fine! I’d request both bash/The Bourne-Again Shell and zsh/The Z Shell.

    Suggestion for a programmer humor community similar to r/ProgrammerHumor (display name Programmer Humor slug can be something like programmerhumor or programmer_humor)

      Arguing about how one language is superior to another and the never ending tabs vs spaces discussion is a very important part of dev culture.

      I didn’t saw this comment at first so I deleted my comment :)

        Letting you know that I made a programmer humor community in the instance :) Since you also suggested it if you want to mod it let me know (and post there) and I can add you

    Hey! Can we have one for Go as well?

      there’s a three character limit on community names for some reason. how about go_lang? or golang? and Go for the community name?

        The one on reddit uses r/golang so let’s stick with that

          Made the community over at https://programming.dev/c/golang If you want to be a mod for it make a post and ill mod you from it

          (I set the display name to also be Golang since its also limited to minimum 3 characters for some reason, if it should be something else its easily changeable)

    Would love a PowerShell or at least general scripting/automation community

      relevant username lol. What do you think would be better? General scripting or specific?

        My preference would be specific to prevent one language dominating all the discussions

            That would be great. Thanks!

            I’d be happy to moderate it for you too.

    What about a community for programming teachers? I work as a computer teacher in what in Spain is called Professional Studies. We teach IT in general (hardware, databases, programming, networking…), and maybe it could be nice to have a community where teachers and general programmers can meet and help to layout the best ways to teach new programmers.

    Editing to add:

    Url: teach_programming

    Display Name: Teach Programming

      would this be similar to the /r/learnprogramming community on reddit? Sounds like a good community though!

        Sure! Was thinking in a more teacher focused approach, but maybe it’s better to have a wider focus, learnprogramming sounds a great idea!

          sorry, I wasn’t trying to get you to change what you wanted the sub to be about. If you want it to be teaching based then I can do that!

            Uhmmm… If it’s ok to you, let’s try learnprogramming and teachprogramming, and we can see the engagement they both get.

              I agree, if only because there are certain techniques for teaching programming that I’d love to discuss with people, and that’s going to be a distraction to people who want to learn programming instead.
