I often look for feedback about the design/software architecture for a given problem. Should I ask it on Stack Overflow, or is there a separate site that is dedicated for such things?


Software Engineering is the place for you.

And if any one says otherwise tell them to read the on topic help section and that I sent you.

  • This was helpful! Can I also ask questions about database modelling in Programmers ? (sample question: stackoverflow.com/questions/9505168/…) – brainydexter Mar 7 '12 at 9:42
  • @brainydexter - They might be better asked on DBA Stack Exchange – ChrisF Mar 7 '12 at 9:43
  • Thanks! I'll flag the question for moderation now. – brainydexter Mar 7 '12 at 9:45
  • Why you wiki this? – user1228 Mar 7 '12 at 15:11
  • @Won't I've been wiking all my answers for quite a while now. – ChrisF Mar 7 '12 at 15:29
  • @ChrisF: You should just take that rep and spend it on bountying stuff you like. – user1228 Mar 7 '12 at 15:38
  • @Won't - Bountying questions that only devs can answer turned out to be a bit pointless. You're right I should look for good answers to reward. – ChrisF Mar 7 '12 at 15:39

    @Karel the name has changed (I must update this answer) and the scope has been tightened, but design questions are still on topic. – ChrisF Jun 21 '17 at 5:41
