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.
