AWS re:Post Takes on Stack Overflow

AWS re:Post Takes on Stack Overflow

There’s no doubt that the Internet can be a great resource for technical information and solutions to the problems that you face. However, it can also be a source of misinformation, dead ends and a waste of precious time. That’s where AWS re:Post Q&A comes in.

Many IT professionals often first turn to a site like Stack Overflow or Petri that is a well-known and trusted resource with a broad user base to handle serious technical questions. In a similar vein, Amazon has created a new AWS re:Post service that provides a curated question and answer (Q&A) site that focuses on AWS issues.
