So say I have a problem I am dealing with and I have couple of approaches in mind. Am I allowed or encouraged to seek advice on approach on Stack Overflow?
Lately with some questions I believe it might not have been so. I work at a start-up wherein we are all learning new things everything so I try to ask questions even related to best practices which experts follow in the industry today.
Although I don't want specific discussion on a closed question, with a question like this (I admit question was a little verbose), I don't have lots of code to seek advice on as I am not seeking advice on where I am getting NullPointer etc. I just want to know the industry standard, if there are any tools or any steps which can help me avoid certain technical problem.
How should those questions be formed so that it still follows Stack Overflow guidelines. Again to stress, I am not inviting discussion on this closed item, just want to understand if I can seek solutions to such questions on SO. Thanks all
