Great Linux Sites for Developers

Filed under

What's a poor, lonely Linux developer to do? Where are all the good support sites? How am I going to fix that troublesome bug?

These are questions that even novice code writers no longer have to ask. The classic view of a lonely, isolated programmer writing code for some obscure open source project in a back room is no longer an accurate view of the work environment in which Linux developers toil.

Open source programs have become so mainstream that the boundaries are blurring between proprietary, commercial and public domain software. Many software companies offer both open source and commercial versions of business-class programs.

"Open source communities have built amazing response systems to developers' needs," Bdale Garbee, chief technologist for open source and Linux at HP, told LinuxInsider.
