StackShare Launches ‘Stack Decisions,’ a New Way for Developers To Publicly Share Technology Choices

Launching with early partners including Microsoft and DigitalOcean,
Stack Decisions lets developers find and share short posts about
specific open source and SaaS tools

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–StackShare, a software discovery platform for developers, is introducing
a new feature that makes it easier than ever for developers to choose
the right software tools for the unique problems facing their companies.

Stack
Decisions
lets developers post and browse short posts about why they
chose a given suite of software tools to overcome a specific engineering
challenge. Developers can share a few sentences about the problem they
faced and the technology they used to solve it, allowing for messages
that are longer than what you can post on Twitter and less
time-intensive than a typical Medium post.

With a community of over 250,000 developers, StackShare has emerged as
the best place for software engineers to learn which tools their
peers are using. The introduction of Stack Decisions — launched with
partners including Microsoft, DigitalOcean, Auth0
and Algolia — helps developers understand the why behind
those decisions.

“As a founder, I know how difficult and time-consuming these large
technical decisions can be,” said Yonas Beshawred, Founder and
CEO at StackShare. “With Stack Decisions, we’ve introduced a powerful
platform for making smarter technology choices — helping our community
get back to the hard work of solving the actual technical challenges
they face each day.”

Stack Decisions is the latest step forward in StackShare’s pursuit of
building the world’s first technology graph, a mission that netted a
$5.2 million Series A round
at the beginning of the year.

“We’re excited about Stack Decisions because it encourages developers to
share their expertise and experiences, allowing for .NET developers to
share their platform choices in to-the-point sentences, which helps
other developers learn more about the language and framework features
and extensibility,” said Maria Naggaga, Senior Program Manager at
Microsoft. “As a member of the .NET team, Stack Decisions gives us the
opportunity to see, learn and appreciate how our growing open source
developer community is using .NET.”

The .NET community has already started sharing some of the most
interesting technology
decisions
they’ve been making while utilizing the .NET platform on
StackShare.

StackShare helps over 10,000 tech companies, including Dropbox and
Airbnb, attract top developer talent by showing off the technology they
use to build their businesses. In addition, StackShare empowers
developers to share knowledge by letting them rate various software
tools.
