    http://stackoverflow.com/ and its network such as http://programmers.stackexchange.com/ you can see other networks at the bottom of their sites.

    And if all u want is chat u cant go on their chat at http://chat.stackoverflow.com/.

    CGI thanks for your recommendation but I think there are much better forums available in the internet. this forum has very small amount of users when I saw it first!

      if 4m questions with 7.8m answers with a reponse rate of 80% and 1.5m users is a small place then yes youre right (this information can be seen on their mother site http://stackexchange.com/sites#).

      Their chat could be kinda desert but the site itself is great, you get responses within seconds, and on the second site I have sent you, u can further discuss about languages and programming in general.

      Most of the old good forums I had known about such as devshed.com and more are pretty much dead since stackoverflow hit in, I use to have a list of 10 more forums that I would visit and contribute to but they are pretty much dead.

    SO is great when you have some specific question, you can ask and get very good answers in just a few minutes, unless the answer is there already. But it's more like Q&A than a forum, and for me it looks not newbie-friendly, most of them don't really like newbies.

    Sitepoint, digitalpoint, freelancer.com's forum seem to be still alive and have quite active programming discussions.

      Well that is what happens on most communities to be honest with you, even here you can see some noobs getting bashed at some questions, its not an issue limited to SO, there will be people that will have the patience to teach you the ABC and people that want you to show you are actually doing something based on what you are asking for.

      Most noobs won't use the search and will go straight to posting their question like for instance "How do I paint my car ?".

      However that is so vague and baseless, what have he tried ? have he even tried anything ? does he just want to be given the answer ?

      Since those communities are for learning that is a turnkey for imposing the noobs to use the search and post relevant information to their questions so they can be actually answered.

    However, I agree with others that Stack Overflow is one of the best and CodingForums.com- Web coding and development forums. Get help on JavaScript, PHP, CSS, XML, mySQL, ASP, and more! is as well good one to learn a programming language.

    Stack Overflow is not really a forum though. It is a question and answer site. It has strict rules against asking questions that have been asked before, and you can't ask questions that are allowed in most forums, such as questions that evoke opinions or debate, like "What is better, PHP or Java?". You also can't start topics that are not questions, hence, not a forum.

    That said, Stack Overflow is the single best gift to the world when it comes to a study of programming. There is simply no equal to it. It's really not designed for newbies though, so it's best to come prepared if you're going to participate.
