The more I hear of this, the more it sounds like an impossible task. You've been told: Build a resource site for programmers, without knowing what resources they need or languages they program in. ... to which, really, the only possible answer is google. Giving even a rough shape to this without knowing what language or what kind of programming is nearly impossible - by their very natures, a resource site will be different if the language are object-oriented or not, open-source or not, and if the programmers are writing standalone application or programes for web access. I think you need to go back to your manager, point out that this is a lot more difficult than it needs to be, and ask for some direction - any direction. Drew.
