Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

First of all, if this is also answered in a FAQ, please point me to it, in that case I apologize.
Sometimes I want to read questions ( and possibly answer them if I can ) but there are lots of so specific questions related to certain languages, platforms, frameworks and special cases.
Is there such tag or group of tags?

PS: the tag suggestion of 'language-agnostic' gives me the idea that this question could be dead before being born ^_^

The language-agnostictag exists. Was that your question? – Ladybug Killer Aug 24 '09 at 13:15
yeah, was going to send you a link to – Nathan Koop Aug 24 '09 at 13:16
"Algorithm" usually is language-agnostic as well: – balpha Aug 24 '09 at 13:17

There is nothing "official" only the tags the community has created and continued to support. Look at lanuage-agnostic and probably most of the tags with design in them (search tags here). Additionally, if you do specialize in object-oriented programming, or functional programming, or something like that, you can find tags for those topics as well.

If you click the big tags button at the top of the page, you'll go to a list of all tags sorted by how much they're used. Obviously many of those in the first page are language specific, but there are a fair number that aren't.

A good rule of thumb is that unless you're asking about some really out-there topic you should have at least one tag on your question from the first page or two.

The most used tag for non language specific content (if one is used at all) is the language-agnostic tag. This is generally what is used for questions that are looking for a process on how to perform an action, even though the programming language is not important.

You can also look for tags relating to the specific "type" of programming you are looking at (object-oriented, top-down-design, etc) and see what pops up there as well.
