Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

Yes, you read it right. My new role at StackOverflow is Human Exception Handler.

I just became a moderator at StackOverflow β€” a site that almost every developer loves to use and receive a great amount of help from.

Membership#

While I am a member of StackOverflow network forΒ five years, five months, it was only one and a half years ago, I thought about getting serious to give back at least 10% of what I take from this awesome resource.Β And it’s moderator by privilege not by the popular vote. Hope to be that someday soon.

The Story#

So, what started as an experiment, quickly escalated into something interesting. Now, almost every time I find a solution to something weird like:

I end up contributing an easyΒ to follow answer.

Gladly, sometimes it helps fellow developers and I get the sense ofΒ giving back, however small it may seem.
