Do you mean career development (ie, courses that might or might not
help you get a new job later), or careers (ie, actual jobs that involve
interesting technology)?

Going to conferences is one good way to delve more deeply into code, eg


The real problem with in depth courses is that there generally aren't
that many people interested in any particular area, so rather than
hundreds of people each year signing up to an introductory university
course in any given city, you're down to a few dozen people every few
years across an entire country, and you also have more problems finding
people to teach the course who understand the details, can teach well,
and aren't busy actually doing development.
