The mbed Compiler is the most important part of mbed - this is where you write your code!
The mbed User Forums are for getting help and advice from other mbed users, and really are user forums; to get access, you need to be a registered mbed user with an mbed Microcontroller. We think this policy helps keep the community to a high quality, and has lead to a signal-to-noise ratio we're exceptionally proud of.
The Questions section of mbed is designed to provide a high quality resource of common (and not so common) questions and answers. This means that instead of searching long forum threads for the answer to a query or problem, both the question and answer will hopefully be captured succinctly on a single page.
The cookbook wiki¶
As an mbed user, you can also add to the website and use what others have contributed! There is a central Cookbook for collecting together useful libraries and information. The aim is to be an archive for every component you may want to connect to, and avoid re-inventing the wheel.
Everyone also gets their own Notebook for keeping useful notes and project logs.

It is nice to know you are not alone. The shared context mbed provide means you can easily help others, and they can help you. Reproducing a bug can be as simple as a couple of clicks to import a published project. For an example of what people are up to now, take a look at the recent website activity.
