Stack OverFlow-athon starting Wednesday June 30th, 7 AM CST

Hey folks! One of the things that has been most beneficial to my Julia learning journey has been posting on Stack Overflow. I try to find questions from other prominent languages or libraries and ask / answer the analog version in Julia. This not only helps me learn a ton but also has massive long tail dividends for the community. In that vain, I will be hosting a weekly live stream and doing these Q/A posts live to try and help motivate other folks to do so too!

Come drop by and let’s ask / answer some Julia questions on Stack Overflow together!


I would also love to have other folks co-host or run these sessions since I will inevitably be busy. Please ping me if you are interested!

That sounds great! Time is too early for me, but I’ll try the approach of poaching equivalent questions from other languages.

The Q/A-athon (and anyone participating outside of that time) could also hunt down deprecated pre-v1.0 answers or dead links. Looks like these should become easier to identify efficiently with the Outdated Answers project as it ramps up.

Great idea, I’ll be sure to mention that as well.
