20+ Discussion Forums for Programmers [2020]

One of the common ways to improve your coding skill is to be active in the discussion group. When someone needs help, help them as much as you can. Teaching others is one of the fastest ways to learn something.

When you teach, you will learn. You keep it to yourself, you will forget it. Don’t be selfish, share the knowledge with people and you will get an excellent reputation. Who’s knows you will get a job promotion or job offer because of you sharing valuable knowledge with someone.

If you are not an expert yet, no worries because all the expert become expert are starting from a beginner. If you don’t know something, do some research on the internet. If you still don’t get it, ask questions in the discussion group and forums.
