Is there any site in the network where career development questions about the programming profession can be asked ? I thought Programmer's was the site for it, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Hmmm, the possible dupe I could find is waaay out of date and suggests Programmers as the best choce (it's explicitly off-topic there) – ben is uǝq backwards Mar 4 '13 at 12:53
@benisuǝqbackwards I have seen the old questions. All of them are from 2011. – AsheeshR Mar 4 '13 at 14:27

There is no site specifically geared to programming careers, but there is the Workplace stackexchange site, where you questions may be on-topic. (Check their FAQ before asking.)

The Workplace is not for career development. – AsheeshR Mar 4 '13 at 14:26
@AshRj hm 100+ questions in Workplace career-development tag speak rather against your statement – gnat Mar 4 '13 at 15:35
@gnat Look at the questions as well. They are all generic questions. Some of the more specific technical questions are closed as off-topic. – AsheeshR Mar 4 '13 at 16:12
@AshRj could you please elaborate on that? I am having difficulty finding an example of what you mentioned, "more specific technical questions" that are closed there – gnat Mar 4 '13 at 16:19
Certainly there are many "career development" type questions that are specific to one person and should be closed as Too Localized anywhere; the Workplace FAQ does point out a few of these (like "which job should I take?" type questions), but I can certainly imagine more general ones that would count as "career development" and fit in there. – Wooble Mar 4 '13 at 16:33
