Collaborate more.

Stack Overflow for Teams is where collaboration happens. Where members of different teams can find & provide answers quickly and share knowledge.

You see areas where you might have the answer and you can find solutions from subject matter experts you have never met. You are able to move faster and collaborate on code that you hadn't worked on before.

Upskill your talent.

All your junior employees have the knowledge your most-talented senior employees have, right at their fingertips — and know who to learn from if they have a question.

Accelerate innovation.

When teams have the time they want, the access to the knowledge they need, and the ability to collaborate, they can create the mindblowing features they’re capable of.

Engineers should help solve the hardest questions, the unknowns, where being familiar with how the product was built is essential. But we don’t want to keep answering solved problems over and over again. That’s where Stack Overflow really helps.
