Welcome to the Programmers Stack Exchange community blog!
One of the great things about Stack Exchange is the way the community works. There are several ways that we try to bring our community together such as chat and Meta, as well as several community events. The next logical step was a blog, and here we are!
So what’s this blog about?
This blog is about:
- What’s happening on Programmers Stack Exchange
- Things Programmers like to talk about including: algorithms, design patterns, development methodologies, etc.
- New developments and technologies.
- And anything else that fits!
Which means there are going to be a lot of interesting things posted here. How do we know the community will like it? The community is writing it!
How did the blog begin?
The first thing we did, was bring it up in Meta. This made the community as whole aware that we were interested in getting a blog. It actually took 3 months before anybody mentioned the blog again, but this time, we had ideas. After deciding what the blog would be about, we tried to get contributors, the people that would power the blog, and write the posts. At that point, we had 8 people say that they were at least interested. So, we went on from there. We got the blog in action, writing and editing posts.
Anybody that was interested in contributing would say so in the Blog Chat Room. We gave them an account to our Trello board, and access to our WordPress dashboard. From then on, we began writing posts and had a very active system. This slept for a while, but finally came back to power. After putting everything together, we got to this point.
And then what?
Well, this is what! We launched the blog, and we are still going (at least at time of writing). If you’re reading this, I hope you read regularly, and maybe even contribute!
Where can I learn more?
