GeneralWhere to post my real question? Pin

So I am looking around the site trying to find the proper forum for asking a programming related question that isn't language specific... I will do the work on actual implementation, I just can't seem to figure out how to implement it. Where would I post a question that is something like 'How do code this to do this as this happens?'?

My actual question is this: I am coding a 2D Tile Based Scroller in Java. When I first started this project I was going to make it a screen-by-screen scroller, but now I want to make it tile-by-tile (the character stays in the middle of the screen and the world scrolls under you). The problem I am facing is this is a client/server setting, so I need to server to be able to constantly send pieces of the map to the client, but I can't wrap my head around how the client should store and parse out this data. When it was just map by map I could have the map in memory and it was of fixed size, now the map size will constantly change and just the viewing size of it will be static.

Where should I post that question? :P
