Can someone tell me what's wrong with this question? How can I improve it?
I'm in the field of EEE but I'm not specializing in software engineering. Yesterday, i had an impromptu idea to develop a software to integrate smartphone with a laptop. However, without any software development background, I'm quite clueless on how to start or where can I learn it?
Can i discuss the idea freely and initiate an open source project? (But how to initiate that if I can't be the technical lead of the project?)
Could someone please point me to some self-learning sources / platform for project discussion? :) Thank you!
It has been voted down and stated as "possible duplicate" of https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/6625/how-to-recruit-programmers-for-an-open-source-project-and-kick-start-it
But I can't find my answers there. What I want to know is 1. How to initiate a project if I can't be the technical lead? 2. What is the suitable platform for project discussion? (is it on Programmers.stackexchange?) 3. What should I learn / equip myself with in order to start the project?
Also, what is the reason for downvote? Often, many people downvote without a reason. (how can I improve without knowing what's wrong?) Perhaps, it should be made a rule to state the reason when they choose to downvote. :( it's really hurtful.
