RefactorMyCode Being a programmer myself I sometimes find that I get a kind of writer’s block that plagues my brain. No matter what I try I just can’t figure out what I’m trying to do, but there might be a new community that is able to help in situations like that.

RefactorMyCode has been created as a site for users to post their programming woes. The site is laid out very nicely, and right now they have categories for Ruby, Python, Perl, PHP, JavaScript, Java, C, C#, and Lisp.

When you post code it gets “refactored” by other users. That means that people try and come up with different solutions that may end up being better. Maybe you have a snippet of code that you have security concerns about? No problem, just post it and let the wisdom of several other people chime in!

To my surprise the community is already doing very well. Each posting normally gets several responses, and some have even had dozens. I’ve gone through dozens of the posts looking at the refactorings, and from them I’ve learned new syntax that I didn’t even know existed! This could become a goldmine for any of you programmers out there.
