johndubchak comments on “What programming languages are used late at night?”

There are some languages, like C++, where the first place to go seeking answers isn’t SO.

C++ devs tend to look at http://en.cppreference.com (using an English locale in this example).

To me, it tends to bias the sample towards the subset of developer population using SO, which would not be a representative sample size for a true population sampling in a statistical problem – it would be oversampled in one group to the exclusion of all other groups.
