Developer Forums: Help!

Problem

I’ve been through this book and I’ve read through the Wiki, but I’m really stuck and nothing is working. Help!

Solution

Gotham has the bat symbol, Metropolis has Superman, and we have the Developer Forums. Whether you’re really stuck or are a super-talented dev master with knowledge pouring out your ears, the Forums are a great place to meet other developers, ask questions, and get help. You’ll find them at http://forum.developers.facebook.com.

It’s also worth checking to see when the next Facebook Developer Garage is happening near you, since these events are like being in the middle of a real-world forum with real people who can answer your questions (and who you can then buy drinks for!). Keep an eye on the Developer Garage Calendar at http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/Garage_Calendar.

Discussion

Don’t forget to contribute back to the community! If you ask a question in the forums and get a helpful answer, make sure you come back when you’ve grown your developer chops and help out others who are just finding their footing. Also, if you’re new to the world of online forums and discussion boards, spend a little time looking through the forums before you post to get a feel for the right tone and content, and to make sure that no one else has already asked your question and received an answer.
