Bringing Jobs to Stack Overflow

TL;DR: We believe that all programmers need and deserve jobs they love. Last week, we added a Jobs tab to Stack Overflow in order to help you do just that. What’s changed? You’ll no longer need to login to a separate account on a separate site in order to use Stack Overflow Jobs. This means…

Stack Exchange for iPhone is here!

Earlier this year, we announced the release of our Android application and the public feedback was fantastic. Well, it turns out we offended our designers by not doing an iPhone application too.

The New Stack Exchange Beta Theme

I wanted to give you a quick look at the new Stack Exchange Beta theme. Yes, we are retiring the familiar “Sketchy” theme and rolling out a more-polished and finished design for the beta sites. Raise the curtain, cue the trumpet fanfare… Alas, poor Sketchy… Over the course of the next few weeks, we will…

Ubuntu Stack Exchange is

We’re pleased to announce that, in partnership with Canonical, Ltd, has become Ask Ubuntu. We’re excited to see this come to fruition, because: Our mission is “let’s make the internet better”; that’s strikingly similar in scope to Canonical’s mission. It underscores the spirit of both Ubuntu and Stack Overflow in that we can all…
