Building the Next Step in Payment Tutorials with Stack Overflow Docs

By

At PayPal Developer, we are constantly looking at new ways to expand our outreach into the community to provide the solutions that developers need, where they choose to be. This is why we work within different external communities, such as Stack Overflow to help with technical integrations, and Github for much of our external developer code offerings and open source projects.

We’re happy to announce that we have partnered with Stack Overflow for the launch of a new project called Stack Overflow Documentation. The aim of the Stack Overflow documentation project is to build a community around the process of creating great documentation, not by simply copying our documentation to another place, but by working with the community to build the documentation, examples, and integrations that developers want and care about. We’ve started by adding some examples based off of common questions that we receive frequently.

Come take a look at the initial documentation and examples we have on Stack Overflow Docs and make suggestions for integrations that you want to see. We’re going to be working hard to help deliver the content that you want to see, and we would love for you to be a part of this with us by contributing examples and topics for things that you built out, by requesting new topics for us to write about, or by improving the samples that we already have up on the site if something just doesn’t make sense or should be revised.

We look forward to working with everyone in our community to build the examples that you all care about.
