stackoverflow Another good one from Joel ! Stackoverflow.com

I’m a big fan of Joel Spolsky who runs an excellent blog on software development and management. He also run a very interesting collaborative website where you can get all your programming question answered by developers and testers across the world. I find stackoverflow.com very simple to use with a growing base of great people discussing software engineering and testing in a very effective way. Definitely a great place to hang around !
Here is an extract from the about page:

Stack Overflow is a programming Q & A site that’s free. Free to ask questions, free to answer questions, free to read, free to index, built with plain old HTML, no fake rot13 text on the home page, no scammy google-cloaking tactics, no salespeople, no JavaScript windows dropping down in front of the answer asking for $12.95 to go away. You can register if you want to collect karma and win valuable flair that will appear next to your name, but otherwise, it’s just free. And fast. Very, very fast.

We don’t run Stack Overflow. You do. Stack Overflow is collaboratively built and maintained by your fellow programmers. Once the system learns to trust you, you’ll be able to edit anything, much like Wikipedia. With your help, we can build good answers to every imaginable programming question together. No matter what programming language you use, or what operating system you call home — better programming is our goal.

Just to be clear, I don’t know Joel and don’t have any commercial relationship with him. I just like to share good stuff !
