The Wall Street Journal reported that Stack Overflow is being sold to Prosus for $1.8 Billion (USD). 😮

I haven't heard of Prosus before, but apparently, they have stakes in two educational tech companies: Udemy and Codecademy.

I'll watch this carefully in the future. To say the Stack Overflow community is large and well-known would be an understatement. Their WordPress-tagged questions (and job listings) make up a pretty big and active part of the site.
