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/…) Mar 7, 2012 at 9:42
  • @brainydexter - They might be better asked on DBA Stack Exchange

  • @ChrisF: You should just take that rep and spend it on bountying stuff you like.

  • @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.

    @Karel the name has changed (I must update this answer) and the scope has been tightened, but design questions are still on topic.
