Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free.

I am looking for a website where I can post code snippets and have them commented/reviewed by others. Does such a site exit?

Do you always know for sure that there is no way your code could be improved? I don't... –  Xavier Nodet Dec 20 '10 at 20:45
Nothing wrong with this question. And to put the guy down for looking for what is essentially a code review strikes me as mean-spirited. –  KevDog Dec 20 '10 at 20:45
@Josh K - Heaven forbid the guy admit he doesn't know absolutely everything about everything and try and improve his code. –  Mike M. Dec 20 '10 at 21:04
@Mike: There is a difference between improving code and asking for people to write code for you. That's what "refactor" means. It would be much better to ask about techniques, patterns, and exploring the language then to change existing code. –  Josh K Dec 20 '10 at 21:30
I'll update the question to ask for 'reviews'... –  Xavier Nodet Dec 21 '10 at 17:12

Code Review Stack Exchange is in public beta. From the site's FAQ:

What kind of questions can I ask here?

Code Review - Stack Exchange is for sharing code from projects you are working on for peer review. If you are looking for feedback on a specific working piece of code from your project in the following areas…

  • Best practices and design pattern usage
  • Security issues
  • Performance
  • Correctness in unanticipated cases

then you are in the right place!

  • Code correctness
  • Best practices and design pattern usage in your code
  • Application UI
  • Security issues in a code snippet, etc.
  • The performance of your code

and your question is not about

  • Tools, best practices, improving, or conducting code reviews
  • Trouble-shooting, debugging, or understanding code snippets
  • Higher-level architecture and design of software systems

… then you are in the right place!

You may want to take a look at Code Review.

There also interesting Stack sites like Project Management.

According to Area 51, there's been an attempt to build an Agile development site, but seems like it's been closed:

Between and these subjects are well supported. These have to be closed as a duplicate.

Stack Exchange: Code Review

You should get useful feedback if you write what you're trying to achieve with as much detail as possible.

will they honestly take a look if i post this there? –  tekknolagi Sep 5 '11 at 5:15
@tekknolagi Yes, if you clearly state what you'd like to achieve. Have the right attitude and mentality and you'll experience the best of people. –  Jonathan Khoo Sep 5 '11 at 5:21
Awesome :D I'm looking for super harsh feedback –  tekknolagi Sep 5 '11 at 5:24

I've not come across anything that is specifically designed for that.

The forums at CodeCall are places where people ask for help with their code, so I would say it is an appropriate place to ask for comments and refactoring help.
