I have been lurking here for quite some time, and have seen questions that could probably be posted on stack overflow and get similar or even better answers. I am looking for a simple explanation as to what the primary difference is between the two exchanges, and what mindset I should have going into each one.
This has been asked many times before:
- Compare the Help Center On-Topic page for Programmers to the Help Center On-Topic page for Stack Overflow.
- What's the difference between Programmers and Stack Overflow?
- Choosing between Stack Overflow and Programmers Stack Exchange
- When do these questions belong on Programmers instead of Stack Overflow?
