Expanding the conversation

Today, forums launched as part of the Yahoo! Developer Network. It’s a soft, preview launch so there are very few boards up while all the kinks are being worked out. BUT the first boards launched are two boards for discussions around the Pattern Library – one general board – and one for Pattern Authors. Eventually, the goal is to retire the Yahoo! groups for these two boards.

When we were reviewing research and surveys for the YDN redesign, real forums, that could be searched, that could have code snippets inserted, that could be granular down to the API – or pattern – were one of the top requested features.

Check them out and join the conversation.
