“What does Silicon Valley know that the rest of the world doesn’t?”
>> Each other’s secrets.
By sharing and discussing their tech stacks—the combination of tools that enable a business to function—on StackShare [www.stackshare.io], Silicon Valley innovators like Dropbox, Airbnb, Spotify, and Instacart are leading the charge in the trend towards greater transparency. By being open about how they build things, these pioneers are empowering other companies to adopt the tools that really work—and making the pie larger for everyone.
With 150,000+ developers, engineers, managers, and CTOs as users, StackShare—a community where users can talk about, rank, and share the tools they use—is quickly establishing itself as Silicon Valley’s go-to weapon in the war for hockey stick growth. See its recent funding announcement in TechCrunch: https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/19/why-stackshare-is-quietly-becoming-a-secret-weapon-for-developers-and-silicon-valley-ctos/.
Here’s why StackShare is about to spread far beyond the confines of Silicon Valley:
>> IT TAKES YOU “UNDER THE HOOD” OF THE TOP COMPANIES IN ANY INDUSTRY
Companies can both stay on top of updates to their own stacks [https://stackshare.io/news] and learn which stacks peers and competitors are using—instead of wasting resources on solutions that don’t work. Trying to build a media company? See exactly which tools Buzzfeed uses.
