Post a question

If you have a programming or code question, you can create a new post by selecting "Ask a Question" on the navbar.

Type out your question with pertinent details on what the issue is you're facing.

Select "CODE" to paste in your code, and submit it for others to see (Shift-Enter for multiple/additional lines).

Check out any other features you may find helpful on the body options, such as text styling or the code view!

Once you've got everything the way you want, select "Submit Question" beneath the text-body.

Respond with a video

Provide a solution! Our site is intended to provide a detailed video response to a post to better assist visual learners. Once a post with a question is created by a user, it will be populated on the home page. Select the post you wish to respond to, and upload a video.

We have also provided you a built-in screen-recorder for your convenience! If you use it, you can download the video file once you stop recording, and drag and drop to upload it as your video response (Must have mic and screen-sharing enabled to use).
