We hope you have as much fun using this site as we had creating it for you!

Woc intro.png

If you have written code for any amount of time, you should most probably have a directory full of code samples for various tasks, like connecting to a database; using a particular media codec library in your app; a shell script for doing something; a particularly clever piece of SQL that you thought up; and so on -- you get the idea.

If so, WikiOfCode should definitely interest you. WikiOfCode is a software developer's wiki: a wiki created by software developers for software developers. It has an interface very similar to Wikipedia's, and anyone can easily sign up on the site and start contributing code samples/snippets. In that sense, this site can be thought of as a Wikipedia for coders.

Furthermore, this wiki is not restricted to any particular language or technology. You can submit your code samples in just about any language that you have expertise in. It just has to be working code.
