Hi there - I'm a professional completely OUTSIDE of the SW development field, but I'm considering a career change in that direction. I'm interested in learning about development, product management, UX design, and any other niche jobs in the field that I don't know about but might be suited for based on previous training/experience. Where would I ask such a question? Thanks.

This might be suitable on programmers.stackexchange.com, but don't be too disappointed if it gets closed - career advice questions are on the brink of being off-topic even there.

From the FAQ:

Can I ask career advice questions?

Yes, within reason. Most career advice questions are specific to the poster's situation and run the risk of being closed. Try to generalize your situation into a good subjective

You should try http://careers.stackoverflow.com/ as a reference to search around; though you can't ask a direct question, you could always find some answers :).
