How to ask smart questions

Asking good questions

  • "I often find that writing up the question makes it clear in my head, and the solution becomes obvious."
  • "Please make sure to share what you’ve tried on GitHub, Gist, or, better yet, a fiddle before asking."
  • "a balance between sharing too few and too many details."
  • "Try to put yourself in the shoes of the person answering the question."
  • Create a minimal representation of the problem, e.g. as a GitHub project.
