Stack Overflow: “Technology is the Competitive Differentiator Now”

Alex Miller is the General Manager for Stack Overflow, a website that has solved more than 10 billion problems for software developers over the last decade. Miller believes it is critical for IT leaders to empower developers to solve technical problems at the source, because they tend to have the best idea of how to solve it. From the shift in types of questions that Stack Overflow answers, Miller can see that the role of software developers is changing, which reflects the need for IT leaders to also evolve.

“What we see in the data is a reflection of what we see in the industry: The entire concept of what it means to be a software developer is changing.”
