in reply to Insert Language Here Monks

The Everything engine is available. I really love this community system and it has been an invaluable resource for me while I was (better, since I am) learning Perl. I told a friend of mine about Perlmonks and he asked me if there was a similar site for Java.

A language I'd like to know very well in its aspects is C++. I'd like to invest effort on a C++ community but I won't have time for 10 months :))

    Yes, Everything is available to do it. But... how hard is it to configure and use, who has a dedicated Linux box to run it (I don't... only one PC =[ ), and is it worth the time? I'll answer the last question myself: Yes, it's worth the time. It's a matter of finding the time.
      It's definately worth the time and effort, if you and others are seriously considering creating such a place for other languages. I think that not only gathering a core group of people to agree on sharing the responsibily, but also inviting possibly core developers or advocates of the particular languages to participate - (such as merlyn, Dominus, etc. have here). They would bring insight to particular problems&answers/meditations/discussions, as well as maybe making it such a community as it is here - a central meeting place for developers of that language.
        I'd seriously consider helping set it up. I wouldn't mind assisting in the running and maintenance, as well. *looks at the calendar* School aproaches. Actually coding Java (for the summer) keeps me busy. If we can find somewhere to run it though I'd squeeze out some time in order to get it running. As far as finding other developers and advocates of the language goes, I'll need help. I'm not a part of any online Java communities and don't know where to look.

        Anyone know a good place to host a project as large as this could potentially be (and for cheap...)?

        Who knows people like merlyn that our Java experts and community people?
