Is it acceptable to use Stack Overflow, banging in question after question?
In the past I have used a variety of methods of recording my progress and keeping track of things I've learnt, including some of the following:
- Paper-based journal
- Test programs
Finally I have come to the conclusion that :
- using Stack Overflow as a 'jotter' might be a good use of the site. Asking questions I cannot readily think of the answer to, and then coming back to either provide the solution I used, or to get pointers in other directions.
I previously asked a question on Stock Overflow as I worked on someting for a couple of hours and then I came back to see what suggestions had been made , and also to provide my own answer.
Is this an acceptable use of Stack Overflow? Banging in questions as I think of them, and then coming back to provide an answer an hour or maybe days later when I've worked through it? Maybe coming back in the meantime to see what answers I'm getting, maybe providing me with new directions to try.
EDIT: I know I asked the question on SO, but posted it on there to ask about methodologies that programmers like to use, and on here, as to whether using SO in 'jotter' kind of way is acceptable.
