I agree with @Rachel in her comment to the question. Career development and career advice are different things.
Career advice question seek help in a particular, narrowly-scoped situation. An answer to such question is not going to help many people. I clearly see that this website is not a place for such questions, unlike Workplace.SE is and probably will be.
On the other hand, [career-development] questions seek general answers on how programmers careers might evolve, what stages of it one might encounter, when to learn theory and when to apply it with different technologies, what experience-based general advices people might have to those who just got out of the college.
I think we should more clearly define what [career-development] tag means and make it clear to the community so that unwanted questions do not take place in the future.
