What is the difference between between these two?

Thanks,
Dave

The members and the culture. We're more awesome on this side.

Seriously though, PFO tends to be a bit more on topic (we don't do forum games very well), and there's a community of regulars that cover most of the topics that come up. Daniweb is huge and there are regulars in different zones, and the forum just feels like less of a community.

Re: daniweb vs programmingforums?

Once you've been here for a while, you pretty much "know" everyone. It's a tight-knit, friendly (as long as you don't break the rules) community.

You probably have a better chance of getting a quick answer on Daniweb, but you won't get the friendliness, or in some cases even friendships, that you get here.
