Hello members of the Meta Community - Hope you all are staying safe during these unprecedented times. I wanted to share my quarterly blog post that I wrote today: The Way Forward:
Three months ago, I wrote a message to our Stack Overflow customers and community, the first of what will be regular, quarterly posts. At the time, I reflected on the fact that we were entering a new decade, a period where tremendous technological forces are reshaping the world. Since then, we have entered a new era, and a historic challenge is facing societies in every corner of the globe. We are reminded that for all of our advances as a civilization, nature can be a powerful force which we must adapt and innovate around.
In this post, I write about how Stack Overflow is reacting to COVID-19, how this worldwide crisis is affecting us as individuals and as a company, and how we are trying to respond and support our Community and customers through this trying time. I try to give some more depth and background on our company’s core values, mission and vision, as we have spent a good deal of work on these over the past several months. I also describe our progress with the community and with all of our products. Even in these trying times, I believe Stack Overflow can make a significant positive impact through transformative technology.
I very much value the feedback that we received from the community in response to my first quarterly blog post, and the positive community interactions that followed. Some of this feedback has led directly to new initiatives that we have kicked off since that post. Please give the blog a read and let me know what questions you have. I appreciate all of your feedback and my team and I will read your responses and will look for ways to include them in our planning moving forward. Thank you.
