Interesting. I've tried using SO as a resource for answering questions while learning Python and found it less than helpful the majority of the time. Often the questions were too complicated and specific for a noob like me to extrapolate to my situation and the answers provided too complex for the simple question I was trying to answer. Sometimes, I'd find the more simple answer I needed for my 101 class buried towards the bottom heaped with scorn (not encouraging for a noob) a la "Ugh that's such a hackish way to do X. Learn how to code." I'll try the #help tag sometime.
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.
