Surprising title huh?
First, by choice, I come from a full-time Freelance background since 2008, in Fullstack development specializing in FinTech, eCommerce & Blockchain so I understand why StackOverflow is very important for developers and especially freelance developers and why is that because on freelance platforms for example generally, deadlines can be very tight, and to meet them one must use all the available resources to do so, by nature platforms reward the ones who does and punishes who don’t. so the ones who don’t use StackOverflow are left behind. and knowing this they are forced to use the stack for their debugging needs
but is this the optimal way to progress? …
