Stack Exchange

Stack Exchange is the largest network of websites for software developers including Stack Overflow, the pre-eminent destination site for programmers to find, ask, and answer their questions. Founded in 2008 by Joel Spolsky and Jeff Atwood, the company was built on the premise that serving and enriching the developer community at large would lead to a better, smarter Internet. Since then, the Stack Exchange network has grown into one of the largest websites in the world, with Stack Overflow alone serving more than 26 million professional and novice programmers each month. The broader Stack Exchange Network has expanded to cover topics as diverse as Mathematics, Home Improvement, Statistics, and English Language and Usage.
