I'm programming for living and StackOverflow is a life savior for all kinds of issues. Sometimes, when I dig deeper into a very specific aspect (such as geometries or design), it's actually better to go for math.stackexchange or ux.stackexchange. I stress: sometimes.
The response should be more extensive there but due to specificness of the question in combination with a lower number of users, it's not.
My situation is like this. I've started to poke around with maps (on a very playful level) so I'm an expert beginner (10 years dev vs 10 days GIS, hehe) and due to different circumstances, I'll go with Here Maps only.
The question is if it's appropriate to ask Here-specific question (on, perhaps, very basic level) on this site or if it's recommended to stick to SO.
