The Hidden Power of Stack Overflow
« on: April 20, 2017, 12:51:29 PM »
Googling any proper noun will bring up its Wikipedia page as one of the first few links, or searching for a product will immediately bring up Amazon, searching for code will lead you to Stack Overflow.  Stack Overflow is, quietly, one of the most important websites on the planet. Not to mention one of the most popular: Launched in 2008, the site now has an Alexa traffic ranking of 52, making it one of the top 100 sites on the web.

The survey result says that-
"Every 8 seconds or so, a developer asks a question on Stack Overflow. This year, 56,033 coders in 173 countries answered the call."

Isn't it amazing?  :)

Thanks madam for your reply.
The answers of this website are very much helpful. I think that most of them are verified too.
