The development and programming tags seem very similar. Sometimes it's obvious that a development question isn't strictly about programming, but otherwise, they overlap.

Yes. Nothing to add to Michael rational, he is just right, both tags have a very similar scope.
Maybe if the tags were seperated more - almost like programming being a beginners section and development being more technical?
