Questions relating to programming generally belong at Stack Overflow where programming questions are best asked and answered.

Ask Different focuses on consumer use of Apple released (beta and production)software (please - no NDA topics). Questions on how to install or launch Xcode are fine here. Also, Automator and AppleScript questions that relate to Xcode are also welcome here. When the problem only relates peripherally to Xcode in that it's ultimately a programming question (Algorithms, language specific errors, what you do with Xcode in the service of making a program) then we will likely vote to close those "code-level" questions and direct people to the many programming centric places on the network.

If in doubt, check the Help Center or post details of your question to Ask Different Meta for help getting Xcode questions answered on Ask Different.
