This question already has an answer here:
StackOverflow has been awesome for code related questions for me as well as my team. However, in the real world, software doesn't exist in isolation or in the context of only code - it's within the context of either a business or a higher purpose (eg: simplifying user Q&A paradigm). For many of those decisions, the question is more 'meta' than just code-questions "float or real?" but more high level; the kind of data more experienced dev / mature projects could very well share with others, in a Q&A format.
So where can one ask questions tightly coupled with software code itself? Real world, high level, software development questions that are as important (if not more) to any software project as specific questions about a few lines of code?
IMHO, StackOverflow is a great place because
- its "of programmers, by programmers and for programmers" approach is great for such related questions
- questions are tightly coupled, software development related (versus related-but-distant like "which software engineering role pays best?" or something)
- avoids too much fragmentation of software experts, developers and problems
However, that's my $0.02. I wanted to hear from others on what they feel is appropriate for the future.
