Questions that are independent of programming language. These questions are typically more abstract than other categories.


A typical usage scenario with this tag is that you have a problem and you don't know how to solve much less what to write in a specific programming language.

So you would first ask a how type question with the tag language-agnostic and usually algorithm. Then when you get an acceptable answer you would code it in a specific programming language. If you have problems then you can refer back to the related question with the tag language-agnostic then in the new what question add the specific programming language, e.g. javascript, python
