This question already has an answer here:

I'm a professional completely OUTSIDE of the software 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?

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
