Stack Overflow is based on Microsoft Tech

Am surprised to learn that Stack Overflow is based on Microsoft technologies.

  • framework: Microsoft ASP.NET
  • language: C#
  • development environment: Visual Studio
  • web framework: ASP.NET MVC
  • browser framework: jQuery
  • database: SQL Server 2008
  • data access layer: LINQ to SQL
  • source control: Subversion (now Mercurial through Kiln)
  • compare tool: Beyond Compare
  • source control integration: VisualSVN (now, VisualHg)

See: Source blog.stackoverflow.com.

Great going Microsoft!
