Where can I get feedback on my programming?

Is there some community where programmers can submit their work to each other and get feedback?

I'm learning Java and rather new at it. I'd like some community where programmers can show what they've done and others will critique it. Your average java community probably wouldn't take too kindly to me making three threads a day saying "This is the latest thing I've done. Please give feedback!"

If there isn't such a community already, would anyone want to get together and make one?

Refactor My Code goes most of the way to what you're looking for.

I second the Refactor My Code recommendation.

A good IDE goes a long way toward giving good feedback on code. For Java, nothing beats IntelliJ in this respect (IMHO).

Are you doing doing this as part of your job, or independently? If you're part of a development team, doing regular code reviews using something like Crucible is essential.

I'd be up for making one. Most stuff about Java you can find on the net is either outdated, written by someone trying to push their enterprise framework, or simply people going on about how Ruby/Python/Perl/Lisp/C/C++ etc. are a better language, instead of actually helping with the issue at hand.

I always figured DailyWTF is where you submit your coworker's code to commiserate on!

Most programming language communities have an active IRC channel. I’m not a Java developer myself, but I see that #java on irc.freenode.net has over 300 connected people right now.
