Tune in for part two of our conversation with Adam Lear and Jon Chan, Stack Overflow developers working on our public sites and community tools.
Unfriendly comments are an issue in our system because of the effect that their tone has on their recipient’s and future readers’ willingness to contribute to Stack Overflow.

What was life like before Git? Why do some many folks love React? How do you transition from a coder to a manager?
How we approached and accomplished the integration between SO for Teams and MS Teams. This is a technical blog for folks who are interested in the process of how we got these two codebases to play nice with one another.
