Tips for Modern Life

The Architecture of StackOverflow.com

I really like the Get-Things-Done attitude and the productive view on workflow (use multiple monitors, don’t be the nerd sitting in front of a laptop). The code is not perfect (lots of static methods), they don’t even test, only have a hand full of developers (!) and nearly no downtime. Ah yes, and they run one of the most successful sites in the history of the internet.

“Languages are just tools”. “You’ll be successful anyways, or fail anyways [it does not depend on the language].” I really like that guy. And by the way, they mainly use dot.net for the site.
