’s LAMP discussion forum is now open. No pushing; plenty of room for everyone.

There was a bit of discussion on the webdev mailing list about whether or not it was superfluous.

My own opinion, is that it was not –’s main reason for existance is discussion of LAMP web-development, by Irish developers. As far as I know, no forum exists for that specific purpose, and it is required.

Advantages to having this specifically for Irish developers:

  • The readers will most likely be acquainted with each other either professionally or socially

  • Use of the forum will grow the readers’ social circle of like-minded people.
  • If a reader is having a particularly sticky problem, there may be someone on the board who can physically come around and help out (for the price of a pint or two, naturally).

I can’t think of any disadvantages.

As for whether or not the site becomes a popular development centre – we’ll just have to wait and see!
