Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I found this link with a similar question but it did not contain the exact awnser I was looking to get:

What are the architecture details of Stack Overflow?

I came across some lengthy articles on the Architecture of SO that were written independently of the SO creators, and also provided opinions on the design and its usage which I found quite interesting. I swore I saved off the links but I can't find them for anything. I think there was even a Microsoft MSDN article or Blog post about this topic, which I would like to see again.

I searched the net and did not find what I was looking for. Does anyone have the information about this sites Arcitecture written from an outside (non SO) perspective?

What do you mean by "non SO perspective"? Can it be posted here on MSO as long as it wasn't written by an SE team member? – Pops Jul 28 '11 at 16:55
Ah, like I mentioned from a MSFT blogger, dev blogger, etc. Not an article that originated from Jon or SO. Nothing against that documentation; its direct from the source, but there were some outside opinions and discussions I was looking for. Hopefully my explination is clear, I apologize if it is vague. – atconway Jul 28 '11 at 19:06
Your best source of information is going to be from insiders. Why would you solicit opinions from people who have never been exposed to the technology? – Robert Harvey Jul 28 '11 at 19:58
Yikes! How do I offend with asking a question? How is it so confusing. As simple as I can ask it: Please provide links about the MVC Architecture of StackOverflow that do not originate from a SO site. – atconway Jul 29 '11 at 17:38
