We need software to help us write software for the same reasons people need the software we write. We write the software so that it can do for someone what they would do manually or store whatever they would remember. Google, in turn, stores the details we would otherwise have to remember in order to build such software. We remember what to Google or use bookmarks or other software to remember what we Googled for us. I suppose at some point we have to actually remember something, but why clutter our heads with stuff we can store on someone else's shelf?
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
