Ada @ stackoverflow

Today I discovered that I’ve never posted a news item about the Ada tag @ stackoverflow.

I’m actually a bit embarrassed that I’ve “ignored” stackoverflow for so long, because it really is an awesome website for programmers.

In case you don’t know what stackoverflow is, here’s a short blurb ripped from their 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.

And yes, stackoverflow is actually just as great as their About page claim.

The Ada tagged posts on stackoverflow might not be as numerous as the PHP/Python/C/whatever, but they are there. So go join the effort and help spread the word about Ada!

Oh, and on a final note, there’s an Ada tag info page which contains a bunch of references to the unmaintained adahome.com website. We should probably fix this ASAP.
