CodeBetter.Com exists in order to help foster awareness of better practices, superior tools, proven methodologies and techniques within the software development community.
As content providers, we hope to publish precise and knowledgeable information, and guide conversations by sharing our personal experiences learning about and engaging in the process of software engineering. We strive to keep our content technical and only produce as much new content daily as a reader can read in detail in single sitting.
We are focused on building up activities, as opposed to tearing down activities. Tearing down activities involve finding faults with and pointing out shortcomings of techniques, tools and methodologies. Building up activities involve showing what works, rather than what doesn’t.
We hope that you will find valuable content at CodeBetter.Com and that what you find here will help you succeed in your software development pursuits!

How was CodeBetter.Com formed?
CodeBetter.Com was initially created in early 2005 by bloggers (Brendan and Darrell) who saw a need for a focused, technical blogging community. Having been members of the popular DotNetJunkies.com community for over a year, they realized that a small, focused group would be a good place to learn and share their experiences with the community.
I don’t see a tip jar. Can I leave a tip?
Nope. All we ask is that you get involved. Every comment you leave on a post or article, positive or negative, helps all of us navigate the technical waters better. If you have a blog, and would like to help the cause, link to us!
Can I have a blog at CodeBetter.Com?
At the time of this writing, CodeBetter.Com is not offering blogging accounts. Since we pay for hosting ourselves, we cannot afford the disk space and traffic fees that hosting blog accounts would certainly impose. Also we’re trying very hard to remain small and focused, with only as much new daily content that a person can read in a sitting. Because of this, we’re deliberately keeping our membership low.
Aren’t you guys just being elitist jerks?
Hopefully, if you’ve read this far, you understand what we’re tying to do by remaining small and focused.
So what makes you guys think you know so much, you elitist jerks?
We’re constantly learning ourselves. What makes CodeBetter.Com a good dependable place for accurate information is you, the community. The more you read and respond in comments and discussion posts, the better.
So how do I know I can trust what I read here?
We’re trying to share what we’ve learned, which will hopefully be a starting point for discussion and exploration. Don’t take our word for it, and don’t practice anything without first thinking about, researching and testing the ideas you find here.
