EDN Tip #4: Getting help with the head scratchers

leave a comment »

Do you have a really tough coding problem to solve, and you’ve gone beyond head scratching into downright pulling your hair out? Assistance is already available for your algorithmic agony!

For years, members of our community had requested a general purpose algorithms discussion forum for just this purpose. One supporter (John Herbster) even went so far as to send me a care package in support of the group. Since that group has been created, I have been impressed and humbled by the great problem-solving talent that contributes to it.

If you’ve got a tough coding problem to solve, I strongly encourage you to share the challenge with the denizens of that discussion forum, and you’ll soon have some great answers to your question.


P.S. The nntp/newsgroup link to the forum is news://
