Per the recent discussions at What's the point of the tag [programming]? the consensus on the tag is that we'll keep it, but heavily re-scope it to try and focus more on theoretical and process-oriented topics.

To that end, I'd like to create some tag synonyms, but I don't believe that "programming" is appropriate as the target of those synonyms, because I don't think it helps convey the new, narrower scope.

What should we call the target of "programming?"

We should call it software-engineering; fundamentally the scope of the tag is similar to that of the Software Engineering SE: methods and practices of building software (games, specifically), including the theoretical.

  • \$\begingroup\$ There is already a software-engineering tag. In the case this answer is the most popular, I guess you'd only create a tag synonym. \$\endgroup\$ – Alexandre Vaillancourt May 22 '17 at 20:16
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, that's what I'd do. The meaningful distinction between the software engineering tag and the new scope of the programming tag is almost nil, imo. \$\endgroup\$ – Josh May 22 '17 at 20:18
  • \$\begingroup\$ But if we read the description of the software-engineering tag, it seems quite different from what programming currently covers... \$\endgroup\$ – Alexandre Vaillancourt May 22 '17 at 20:21
  • \$\begingroup\$ Currently covers, yes, but it seems pretty inline with what I think the new scope of the programming tag should cover. \$\endgroup\$ – Josh May 22 '17 at 20:50
  • \$\begingroup\$ If we go with this, we should consider keeping programming as an alias. In my experience with students and recent grads, I don't think anyone has asked me about becoming a "software-engineer" as opposed to a "programmer". So I expect, while they may mean software-engineering, they're more likely to use the programming tag and not find software-engineering with out that alias. \$\endgroup\$ – Chris May 25 '17 at 17:05

    \$\begingroup\$ @Chris Right, that's what this is proposing. When a user types the "programming" tag on a question, it will get replaced with whatever alias we end up selecting as a result of this meta question. \$\endgroup\$ – Josh May 25 '17 at 17:27

    \$\begingroup\$ I have now done this. \$\endgroup\$ – Josh Jun 23 '17 at 14:42

This mega post contains all the questions that have the tag . Since the merge of the tag , some of these don't really need the tag software-engineering as the scope is different, so all of these questions tags should be revised.

The idea is that whenever you have time to review a couple of them, review them (either retag the questions or leave them as is, as needed), and then remove the questions from this list.

Once all the questions have been reviewed, we'll be able to delete this post.
