The name stackoverflow.com was partially chosen by the community, with stackoverflow.com winning by a virtual landslide.

But websites can’t survive on name alone. We also need a logo. A logo with verve. With zazz. With moxie! A dynamic logo that reflects the potential of this mythical programming community site we’re building.

Rather than try out my anemic design skills — it’s always dangerous when programmers start thinking they’re designers — I thought I’d put the logo design to the community in similar fashion. We have a stackoverflow.com logo design contest at 99 designs, with a prize of $29 at stake.

99 designs logo

I’ve been quite impressed by many of the submissions so far. The contest runs for another five days, so if you’re interested, please submit a logo!

Podcast logo The Stack Overflow Podcast is a weekly conversation about working in software development, learning to code, and the art and culture of computer programming.

The Loop-September 2020: Summer Bridge to tech for kids

In response to COVID-19 and its impact on SYEP, over 50 nonprofits and technology companies came together to design the Summer Bridge 2020 plan to continue the program. As one of Summer Bridge’s partners, Stack Overflow designed a workplace challenge to give students a taste of what it’s like to work in the tech industry and to give us a chance to learn more about how students engaged with our developer community.
