How do you plan your career path?

As developers, we can theoretically transition into other technical roles, as well as non-technical (or less technical) roles as jobs evolve with the companies we support. Over time, we can choose to specialize - and the more segmented the tech industry becomes, the more it seems to encourage specialization. For those of us who have many interests, specialization can be difficult to consider.

Questions for discussion:

  • How do you define your career path?
  • What do you look for in a career?
  • How do you choose between many different things that interest you?
  • What advice would you offer to developers exploring paths to follow?
