Here’s how Stack Overflow users responded to Log4Shell, the Log4j vulnerability affecting almost everyone

When we published our data analysis of the security questions on Stack Overflow and the Information Security Stack Exchange back in October, we found that every time that there was a major vulnerability or breach, there would be a corresponding uptick in the number of questions asked. It made intuitive sense, but the data confirmed it. But we didn’t...

Plan for tradeoffs: You can’t optimize all software quality attributes

The next software app I use had better not have any bugs in it: no 404 “page not found” errors or help screens that don’t match the form with which I’m working.

Stack Gives Back 2021

One of our most loved traditions is Stack Gives Back. Every year since 2009, we’ve surveyed Stack Exchange moderators about charities they would like to support and then donated $100 on behalf of each moderator. This year, we decided to keep the same list of charities we had in 2020 because of the resources, medical care, and awareness these organizations...

Podcast 406: Making Agile work for data science

Data scientists and engineers don’t always play well together. Data scientists will plan out a solution, carefully build models, test them in notebooks, then throw that solution over the wall to engineering. Implementing that solution in the software product they work on can take months. On this episode of the podcast, we chat with Michael...

The Great Resignation is here. What does that mean for developers?

Nearly two years into the pandemic, many Americans are reevaluating their relationship with work. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 4.5 million Americans had quit their jobs at the end of November 2021, while 10.6 million jobs were open. Software developers—even though their jobs can typically be done remotely and should, in...

Episode 404: Podcast not found ;)
