Every developer I have met has a career goal. Some developers want to remain “in the trenches” and are aiming for a Senior Developer title. Others want to step away a bit from the day-to-day work and are shooting for an Architect role. Some see development as a path towards a more hybrid position, such as a Business Analyst or a Project Manager. While other developers are striving for that corner office, whether it be as a Director, Department Head, or even CIO.
