As a basic overview CodeProject articles have a certain layout to follow, so that users can learn the most from them. Each article attempts to answer the following questions: What problem does this solution solve? How does this help someone else? How does the code actually work? What is going on inside the code snippets?
Here is a submission from a first time author who did a terrific job, just to give you a basic overview of what a beginner article might look like: Avoiding InvokeRequired[^]
My article "Building on My SQL Storage Engines and APIs to Conduct Complex Analysis Using SQL Query Language: Part 4" has been approved and is now publicly available. I also submitted the source code and binaries but they are not available. Please help
I recently posted my first answer on the project that worked as a solution for me on the same question. I evidently did not answer the question since I received an unattended email informing my answer did not really answer the question. The email says to go to the article and click the "Update my article" link to revise my answer.
The problem is I can't find the link on the page. I next tried the drop down menu on my username and went to "My Answers". I see that my answer was closed but I can't find any way to retrieve what I wrote or to edit my answer.
Can someone direct me to where the link is.
I really want to see what I typed. The information I provided helped me resolve a similar issue. I just want to see where I went wrong with my answer.
I would like to write an article about a data structure I have developed. The source code is on github.com under an MIT license.
My question is:
Is posting an article on Code Project that directs people to my open source project on github (under the MIT license) in any way against the rules of Code Project Article creation? Thanks.
The article will explain how it works, how to use it, and when to use it, but it will NOT include the source code (because it is on github).
Note that source code associated with an article that was written by the author must be provided with the article. External links to the most up-to-date version (or online demo) are fine, but we still require at least a workable version to be submitted with your article to be made available on CodeProject. The reason for this is that 9 times out of 10 links to external downloads break within months due to any number of unavoidable factors. Having a local copy on CodeProject means at least some code will still be available.
I think hosting the code on GitHub tends to be OK. It's more problematic when the code is hosted on a personal blog which could disappear overnight.
However, that's just my opinion, and might not reflect the views of the hamsters.
