In this paper, we propose the first system, so-called Open Programming Knowledge Extraction (OPKE), to automatically extract knowledge from programming Question-Answering (QA) communities. OPKE is the first step of building a programming-centric knowledge base. Data mining and Natural Language Processing techniques are leveraged to identify duplicate questions and construct structured information. Preliminary evaluation shows the effectiveness of OPKE.
