It happens to developers all the time, and sooner or later it's likely to happen to you -- you'll get stuck. With an uncooperative chunk of code, an inscrutable application, or some other technical conundrum. Documentation will be scarce. Web searches will bring you only heartache. Your colleagues? Sympathetic looks (if you're lucky).
Where do you turn? How about one of our My developerWorks forums? Whether you're working with Ajax, Linux, XML, AIX, WebSphere, or something else -- why not tap into the collective wisdom of our massive developer community? (Did you know that our forums get more than 600,000 visitors a month?) Get your questions answered, or lend a hand to someone else in need. Want some pointers for success? This article by John Pape reveals pitfalls to avoid when posting on community forums.
So give it a shot. It can't hurt to ask... and hey, we've all been there.
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
