I see more programming issues but not many architecture issues. Is there such a forum where design patterns are discussed?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Design patterns are patterns of -- you guessed it -- design. So this is programming, not architecture. – wilhelmtell May 7 '10 at 3:06
oh hai there – BlueRaja May 7 '10 at 3:31

It's fine to discuss architecture issues here (providing you're not talking about the architecture of homes and other buildings). Architectural issues are certainly "of interest to other programmers" so fall within the guidelines:

  • detailed and specific
  • written clearly and simply
  • of interest to other programmers

Design patterns are a programming topic, so discussions of such are certainly suitable on Stack Overflow.
