Discussion

So that students can connect with classmates via platforms on which they're already spending (too much!) time, CS50 has official communities on Facebook, Gitter, LinkedIn, reddit, Slack, Stack Exchange, and Twitter. If not already a user of any of those, allow us to suggest that you start with reddit!

Facebook

Prefer to interact with classmates via Facebook? Visit facebook.com/groups/cs50 and join CS50's Facebook group!

You can follow CS50 itself at facebook.com/cs50 or David at facebook.com/dmalan.

Gitter

Prefer to interact with classmates via Gitter? Visit gitter.im/cs50/x and join CS50's Gitter channel!

Reddit

Prefer to discuss CS50 with classmates via reddit? Visit CS50's "subreddit" (aka /r/cs50) at reddit.com/r/cs50. You're welcome to browse and search for answers without a reddit account. But if you'd like to ask questions or upvote or downvote posts, you'll want to create a reddit account and log in at ssl.reddit.com/login, then return to reddit.com/r/cs50. That account will be distinct from your edX account, but you're welcome to (try to!) choose the same username.

Be sure to read up on "reddiquette" at reddit.com/wiki/reddiquette so that you don't get downvoted! And you might want to install Reddit Enhancement Suite in your browser, which adds a lot of nice features to reddit.

If inclined to post code that you've written,

If you'd like to post a screenshot that you've taken, simply upload it to imgur.com and then paste that upload's URL into the text of your post, per reddit's FAQs.

Finish CS50x already? Like to field questions on CS50's subreddit as an alum (i.e., graduate) of CS50? Let us know your reddit username at cs50.harvard.edu/alum so that we can give you some "flair" so that "alum" appears next to your name when you answer questions, so that students know you're there to help!

Slack

Prefer to chat with classmates from around the world in real-time at cs50x.slack.com? Request an invitation at cs50.edx.org/slack, and we'll follow up via email! Download native apps for Android, iOS, Mac OS, and Windows at slack.com/downloads.

You can say hello to David at @malan.

Stack Exchange

Prefer to ask a question of classmates via CS50's "Stack Exchange" at cs50.stackexchange.com? Sign up at cs50.stackexchange.com/users/signup. Be sure to take the 2-minute tour so that your questions don't get downvoted! You're welcome to browse and search for answers without a Stack Exchange account too!

If inclined to post code that you've written,

Twitter
