Just wondering if anyone knows if chat.stackoverflow.com is built in-house or is making use of an off the shelf product (and if so which one).
Does software still come on shelves? :)– balpha StaffModOct 25, 2010 at 13:22
Unless you go commando, yes. @bal– randomOct 25, 2010 at 13:42
Quite literally in-house, I believe :)– BenjolOct 25, 2010 at 14:19
@Balpha In Russia and eastern Europe, it is actually hard to find legitimate software (and China, I gather).– Mark COct 25, 2010 at 16:12
It's built in house.
I was going to list the developers but being afraid of offending by missing someone out I decided not to.
In house, with the standard tools
