One of my mates is at start of his computer science degree. I had a word with him about advantages and importance
of code review and
Stack Overflow on daily basis, as he is addicted to some social networking sites.
He agreed to the first point, but I could not convince him about the second. I personally understand, the positive impact of Stack Overflow over myself, but I was not able to to list them for a new programmer.
So, what in your opinion could be the reasons to suggest someone, use Stack Overflow for learning, as we use books and tutorials?
Note: "He is a good learner and enjoys programming". I am not recommending him to use Stack Overflow as primary learning method/meduim.
