Explore More Than Q&A
"Just because you find an answer on Google doesn't mean you're going to get the explanation you need. Sometime it's not enough to know THAT it works, you need to know WHY it works. Experts Exchange is that and more!"
- Bruce, PHP developer
While we have an extensive database of more than 4 million verified tech solutions, the true value of the Q&A forum is the ability to get personalized answers to your specific issue.

That is where true learning takes place, and it’s a benefit our members enjoy. Premium members have even greater access, with the ability to instantly view all past and existing solutions without waiting.

For those who contribute to the community, the benefits can range from gaining a deeper understanding of the subject matter to opening the doors to employment opportunities. For Stuart Scott, member since 2001, it was both.
After asking and answering Amazon Web Services (AWS) questions on Experts Exchange for years, Stuart began writing articles based on questions he saw pop up over and over. Having never thought of himself as a writer, Stuart took advantage of the opportunity to hone his writing style and found that the format reaffirmed and deepened his own understanding.
“It’s different taking the knowledge from the textbook to the real-world, and then it’s a different kind of learning when you get into the nitty-gritty… you really apply [your] knowledge and then increase it.”
- Stuart Scott, AWS trainer at Cloud Academy
