When did Stack Overflow first go live?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Jeff Atwood announced the Stack Overflow private beta on July 31, 2008. It went public some time afterwards. The Stack Overflow blog was created long before as a communication method between Jeff Atwood and Joel Spolsky and the audience and as a hosting ground for their podcasts.
