StackOverflow-Solve your query for software development
Over the last few days I’ve been playing with the beta of Stackoverflow.The concept behind Stack Overflow is that it is a focused arena where developers can help each other, with a digg-like voting scheme to try to bubble the good stuff to the surface. The homepage at Stack Overflow certainly reminds us of digg, but hopefully the level of discourse is not similar.
In case you are unaware, Stackoverflow is a joint venture between Jeff Atwood ofCoding Horror and Joel Spolsky of Joel on Software fame. It’s basically a question and answers site for software developers.
Stack Overflow has been criticized for solving a problem that does not exist, and for having a questionable reputation system. Developers looking for answers typically turn to Google, so why the need for a new site? I think Stack Overflow could turn into a bit of a nexus for developers looking for quick answers.
