StackOverflow user goes to Interview
Interviewer: "What is your Programming experience?"
Me: "I can use StackOverflow."
Interviewer: "You are hired."
This is a meme but it makes a lot of sense. Having the skill to find the solution on the web and fix a broken code makes you a good practical developer.
StackOverflow is a dating site
It is a fact that if Developers know how to read documentation then the demand of StackOverflow is 0.
Nevertheless, reading a documentation and finding the issue is a difficult and time consuming task.
This meme shows Developers love StackOverflow but not StackOverflow' father, Documentation.
Senior developers hate when new developers ask questions on StackOverflow.
StackOverflow is down
StackOverflow does not have 100% uptime. Occasionally, developers have found StackOverflow to be down and have left their work in no hope of completing it.
Just hope StackOverflow does not do down today.
Whenever you ask a question on StackOverflow, you will receive at least one comment stating that your question is a Ridiculous question. In many cases, your question will be deleted by StackOverflow moderators.

The end of Internet
Everyone can fix a bug but can you do it without looking up the Internet?
Imagine a situation when the Internet broke worldwide. Can anyone fix this?
This is just a meme. There are technicians who work hard to keep the Internet working always and all technology advancements are documented in books. Any experienced person will be able to fix it in reality.
There are different ways to see a thing and it impacts how you deal with it mentally.
- Optimist (positive view point): The glass is half full.
- Pessimist (negative view point): The glass is half empty.
- StackOverflow's view point: The glass is a stupid questions.
Coding without StackOverflow
Today, a programmer who can code a solution without referring the Internet is rare. Even top programmers refer the Internet for solution to bugs and techniques.
Some programmers go further even search for basic Programming syntax like for loop syntax in Python. This is normal and does not mean that you are not a good Programmer. It only means that you do not have enough practice with the Programming Language at hand. Ideas are more important than syntax.
As a rule of thumb: Do not touch a working code.
It has been seen often that minor or trivial changes in a working codebase can break the entire system.
Many programmers create large codebases by taking code from different sources. When you work in a professional setting, remember that you need to note the sources you are taking the code from and add a reference as a comment.
Additionally, when you take a code, you need to check the license as well and the entire process to check if your code base can be used without any issues is a time consuming process.
Apes together strong
It is widely known that a group is always stronger than a single person.
If the bonding in the group is strong even if the group consist of beginner level programmers, the result will be better than an experienced programmer.
StackOverflow works on the same logic. People work on each others' bug and share solution as it works on their system.
With this article at OpenGenus, you must had a good time looking at these StackOverflow memes. Enjoy.
