Computer Programming related Webcomics

I’m looking for more any programming related webcomics. I don’t think there is much out there, mostly gaming (which seems to be every other one). The only exceptions are of course xkcd and rare excerpts from a few others. One of my favourites is Mac Hall’s Hard Code.

Mac Hall hard code webcomic 165

I’ve been told to just start my own webcomic, but I don’t think that will be happening. So.. any recommendations?

    I do think you should start up a webcomic Tony, also people from compsci.ca can help

    maybe start a new section for funny jokes that you can illistrate then publish!

    Well, last time we tried, people from compsci.ca did help… at first. There wasn’t enough support to sustain the project.

    You might want to try one of the webcomics listed below. While I don’t know of any strict programming-only webcomics, all the ones below do deal with computer related humor. Most of the ones that you usually find deal more with help desk/tech support than actual programming.

    Business Casual – this is my webcomic that occasionally deals with programming. there’s also office and business humor in it.
    User Friendly – long running webcomic
    Help Desk – more help desk related than programming.
    General Protection Fault

    Also check Geek Hero. It’s office life related, with focus on programming.

    Hah, I like it!

    Is it a coincidence that one of the characters is named as a misspelling of Randall Munroe?

    Well, you can check out my webcomics… It’s called My 25 Percent, and it’s about a software engineer working in a large software corporate. It’s less about programming and more about working in an IT company, but maybe you’ll find the kind of humor you’re searching for there. There are occasionally programming-related jokes there, but my crowd is more into manager-bashing than coding jokes… :-)
