Obtaining 10k reputation in Stack Overflow and reflection
Published on October 08, 2022
Some years back including my university days, I was looking for answers to programming problems I came across, mainly errors in the middle of some sort of coding. Stack Overflow has been the savior for most of the time. Once I thought why not try to answer some of the questions that I have knowledge of? At that time I had good knowledge of JS and React JS gained from the startup project I have been working on and from my employment at that time. After answering a few questions under React JS tag I got my first accepted answer. That's how my Stack Overflow journey started.
Benefits I got from the Stack Overflow site
- Stack Overflow tag info has many learning resources which are really useful.
- I also asked questions and got answers where I got stuck. It's mostly about how to ask a question clearly and informatively.
- Technology is always updating with new releases, so questions too, so I could be updated with new things.
- You can gain knowlege just by going thought Q&As. The same question is answered with different approaches by answerers.
Most importantly it's such a satisfaction you can get when you could help someone by answering their question and earn some reputation points. The words they put in a comment saying "thanks" always made my day. Honestly, these 10k reputation points are worth more than 10k pounds to me :). Finally, I would like you to start doing the same, just start with the tech tag you are already familiar with.
Have a nice day!
