Blog Overflow: What was Stack Overflow Built with?

framework Microsoft ASP.NET

language C#

development environment Visual Studio

web framework ASP.NET MVC

browser framework jQuery

database SQL Server 2008

data access layer LINQ to SQL

source control Subversion (now Mercurial through Kiln)

compare tool Beyond Compare

source control integration VisualSVN (now, VisualHg)

We have a few other minor dependencies as well, such as ReCaptcha, DotNetOpenId, and the WMD control (which we subsequently rewrote), but that’s about it.
