Should questions about creating webparts or modifying the code in server files be relegated to Programmers or StackOverflow?

    On the flip side of that, I wonder about SharePoint dev questions being asked on StackOverflow now, would they promptly be shifted off to here now or just answered despite the overlap?

Anything having to do with SharePoint should be on SharePoint SE. This includes the creation of SharePoint Web Parts and the creation/modifying of SharePoint specific code files.

See this answer from the Area51 Proposal for more information: https://area51.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1055/when-should-a-question-be-posted-on-sharepoint-overflow-instead-of-stackoverflow/1062#1062 -

Absolutely not. This is neither a dev forum nor an IT forum. It's all about SharePoint.

  • My original response meant the exact opposite of what I intended, when taken in the context of the question. Great start.
