CONSOLE.LOG / Researching a Stack Overflow survey and its results through racial and socio-economical lenses

Stack Overflow is a privately held website, the flagship site of the Stack Exchange Network, created in 2008 by Jeff Atwood and Joel Spolsky. It was created to be a more open alternative to the earlier question and answer sites such as Experts-Exchange. Since 2011, they ask their visitors to take a survey, from topics such as technical expertise, professional expectations, and social delimiters. I have decided to cross some of these results and explore some of them regarding race and inequality, zeroing on education and salary analysis.
