If you need to discuss an algorithm or a design pattern probably you should post the question to programmers.stackexchange.com — Steve 42 secs ago

Q: Can I ask career advice questions?

Adam LearIn light of several recent occurrences of people asking for their questions to be deleted after they received answers, I'd like to propose the following addition to our FAQ: Can I ask career advice questions? Yes, within reason. Most career advice questions are specific to the poster's...

@Shog9 In the past, we've also had a laundry-list of subjects that were on-topic here. See Anna... er, Adam's post, above. Each subject had its own set of caveats (a teasing apart of the topic to determine which questions could be asked, and which couldn't). None of the subjects had much to do with each other, except that they had something to do with programming. Nobody understood how this worked, or the rationale behind it.
The "picture full of text" is a single subject area...SDLC. It clearly illustrates what that means. Any subject in that area is on-topic as long as it relates directly to the SDLC (i.e. it doesn't stray into "pickles as a programmer" territory). I have to believe that's simpler than what we had.
If that isn't clear enough for people, we have an entire Wikipedia article to explain it further.
We have no illusions that new people will read that and ask the right questions...That's what I'm hoping the site title will do. But we can point to it and say "this is our scope" without arguing endlessly about intricacies.
 
@RobertHarvey to be clear, I like SDLC == Site Scope. My point was simply that the picture probably doesn't simplify this much given you still have to read it. The bright side here is that learning what SDLC means is probably a good thing for most folks interested in the site anyway, so if nothing else we're educating people who wouldn't otherwise give a shit.
 
Well, there's always The Four Bullets.™ :P
 
don't kill the new users now

Though I'm still inclined that, if people can't grok what SDLC means, they probably shouldn't be asking questions here.
It doesn't exactly take an advanced degree to figure that out.
 
PSE, the only site requiring an advanced degree to figure out scope? :-)
 
I like it. Let's make that the tagline.
 
might as well make it a phd. I have a MS and still can't figure it out
but I really like where you are going with the SDLC approach

Q: Deploying multiple WARs (small websites)

NaniSo I am asked to deliver some "static" websites. When I say static, I also mean that the end user should be able to change the content of the pages of the website. So it's not really a static website nor a real webapp. I have always coded java/spring with an Angular frontend. So i am thinking o...
