The Stack Overflow podcast is back! Listen to an interview with our new CEO.

For when you know you are reinventing the wheel, but are doing it anyways. Questions with this tag involve code that is already fully implemented (such as from a library).

It is advised that such questions be free from criticism such as:

Library X already implements this code better; use that instead.

However, if it appears that the author is unaware of a better implementation (thus not writing the code for learning/practice), then he/she should be informed of that. Such questions should not use this tag.
