Recommendation for C++ Programming Forums?

Post by BeyondCritics » Wed Dec 16, 2020 2:01 am

What is a good programmers forum for C++ coders (besides this one of course...), where you can discuss or read about technical C++ problems?
Obviously there are plenty of forums attached to everything, but which one is the forum where the top specialist are proud to post?

I don't know a forum of the kind that you are looking for. It is not easy for a forum to include the wide range from beginners to experts.

https://www.google.com/
First try is Google. Many problems are already diskussed and solved. This will often lead to one of the next addresses:

http://www.cplusplus.com/
This is a good starting point and reference for C++ syntax. They also have a forum link on the start page. I have not tested that.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/
They have millions of questions and answers.

https://isocpp.org/
The official standard C++ page where the real language experts are. The links on that page will often lead you to other interesting C++ videos, vlogs and blogs.

As you yourself observed it, this obviously doesn't answers the question, but thanks for your time anyway.

en.cppreference.com is usually much more precise than cplusplus.com, without being harder to understand.

Yep, this is their intention: https://en.cppreference.com/w/Cppreference:FAQ
What is the purpose of this site?
[...]
The primary objective is to have a good specification of C and C++

There is nothing great. https://www.reddit.com/r/cpp/ is ok if you want to talk about the standard.

That seems to be a good one, thanks.
Likely it has something to do with the social control feature of reddit, which encourages quality postings.

Most of the moderators of r/cpp are also C++ Committee members.

More than 20 years ago I used comp.lang.c & comp.lang.c++ news groups from the Netscape mail :)
I don't know if they are still alive, but I liked those groups a lot.
