Ruby spot it

Hi there.

I follow the threads here on the list, and i read some of the questions
and answers, but most of them seem to be pretty complicated (Q&A…).
Okay, I must admit, I am quite new to ruby (well not soo quite :wink: ) and
to programming. But i find it interesting to read other noob questions
(some of them i understand, some i could answer , most of the time they
are already answered…) just for learning reasons.

And now the big question :

Does anybody think that starting a website like www.ruby-spot-it.de
would be useful ?
And would anybody support it by submitting “errors” (Think some people
here are teaching ruby, right ?? Maybe they have some knowledge of sort
of standard coding errors) and by helping answering the errors (Well
afaik people here ar always helping noobs. Found that out myself… :slight_smile:
)?

The idea behind is:

  • a place where noobs can post their “can you spot my error” messages
  • where professionals and other noobs can answer them and maybe discuss
    them
  • a place with a Q&A like “game” where there is the code including the
    error and a way to fix it, maybe sorted be “level”,“sort of error”
  • where professionals and other noobs can answer them and maybe discuss them

What sort of motivation would a “professional” have to go to a
beginner’s site to go about correcting beginner’s errors without the
expected win of maybe being able to discuss his or her own problems?

There is already the forum which IIRC is targeted at the same audience.
And I believe it is mirrored to this NG / list. Having said that it’s
probably not such a good idea to open up another resource to serve the
same purpose. My 0.02EUR…

Kind regards
