New JavaScript Mailing list - JSMentors
Saturday, 04 December 2010

A new mailing list for JavaScript programmers aims to help beginners ask experts difficult questions. Find out what it's all about.



It is always nice to have somewhere to ask questions and get serious answers. JSMentors is a new mailing list that is dedicated to JavaScript. So far it has around 1000 members and generates a manageable number of mostly interesting discussions.  The focus is on the language aspect of JavaScript but you can ask about host environments, algorithms, libraries  and so on. The creators of the list state that:

We also wanted to provide a list that was professional, courteous, and friendly to developers of all skill levels.

So far they seem to be succeeding.



If you think that a mailing list is a little retrogressive in these web oriented days all I can say is that it might be but there are lots of advantages to having a digest of the day's posts just turn up in your mailbox without having to do anything. You can of course read the archive at the website before you decide to sign up.

What can I say to recommend it more than to add the simple fact that I've signed up.
