Then a Miracle Occurs - Public Beta

by Jeff Atwood

on September 15, 2008

stackoverflow.com is now live and open to the public, as a public beta.

I think you should be more explicit here in step two.

Our heartfelt thanks to all the software developers who so patiently helped us test the site during the private beta. You are the true heroes of this project, contributing your time in creating over 8,500 questions in a month and a half -- not to mention putting up with our bugs and errors. Your beta badges are forthcoming.

We'll see how long Stack Overflow manages to stay up now that it's in public view. We did some last minute caching and optimizations that should help.

I, for one, am keeping my fingers crossed.
